About Ranu Mukherjee
Ranu Mukherjee is an American artist of Indian and European descent. She makes hybrid work in painting, moving image, and installation to build new imaginative capacities, guided by the forces of ecology and non-human agency, diaspora and migration, motherhood, and transnational feminisms. 

With her residency project Ensemble for Non-Linear Time, she works with dense imaginary forests as a protagonist, both in her solitary painting  and with cast and workshop participants. In collaboration with choreographer Hope Mohr, their fall workshop series Imagining Futures engaged immigrant and refugee artists in somatic and visual explorations to connect with experiences of rupture as sources of expertise and imagination that often go unrecognized . An ensemble cast for performance and film works includes workshop artists Beatriz Escobar, Sunroop Kaur and Claudia Soares and dancers Belinda He, Irene Hsi and Karla Quintero. This work has been supported by 18th Street Arts Center, 836 M San Francisco, ARTogether Oakland, Bridge Live Arts, Gallery Wendi Norris and Montalvo Art Center.
