More Information

Preceding David Sequeira’s artist talk, Jainam Mashruwala comes full circle outside the Grainger through a Garba performance. Garba is an Indian traditional dance form that honours, worships, and celebrates the feminine form of divinity. Performed outdoors in response to the semicircular architecture of the Grainger Museum, Garba ‘completes the circle', via upbeat movement and music.

Tickets are free.

In 2021 Museums and Collections invited artist and curator Dr David Sequeira to be the University’s inaugural Creative Researcher in Residence at the Grainger. The building was emptied of its contents and David was given access to Grainger’s collection of manuscripts, musical instruments and personal effects.

#brownmaninawhitemuseum is a suite of new installations, curatorial interventions, talks and performance resulting from this residency.
