"Radha S. Menon: Touched by Devi" AGH Exhibition

22 June 2024 - 5 January 2025

Touched by Devi is a multi-media project and is the first major solo museum exhibition for Hamilton-based artist and playwright Radha S. Menon.

The exhibition is inspired by her family’s connection to dance. Her mother loved to dance but was never allowed to become a professional dancer, because of the Hindu cultural connection between dance and sex work. When Radha said she wanted to sing, dance, act and attend art school, she was pressured not to and ran away from home at age 16 to become an artist.
