Priyanka Dasgupta & Chad Marshall

Smack Mellon Artist Studio Program

92 Plymouth Street

Priyanka Dasgupta and Chad Marshall have been working collaboratively since 2015, developing installations that re-contextualize desire and privilege in the United States. Their installations span a range of media, incorporating sculpture, video, sound, photography and painting.

They imagine the medium of installation as a catalyst for dialogue by combining video, sculpture, sound, photography, painting and texts. At once creating a complentative and contradicting source of ideas that work towards destabilizing linear relations between history, memory and politics.

Informed by the complexities of our their own transcultural reality, their practice remains grounded in the desire to uncover shared histories between self and another. Their recent work considers the role of the contemporary diasporic artist in making visible alternate histories and disrupting binary driven distinctions between societal norms and stereotypical expectations.
