Awareness through art



Take not one, not two, but three whole days to really soak in the work of Indian performance artist B. Ajay Sharma as a part of the Inverse Performance Art Festival at Cuesta College's Harold J. Miossi Gallery from Sept. 28 to 30.

Sharma's work for this show, Cultivate the Hunger Land, focuses on the advancement of climate change, an increasingly unstable economy, and the increasing food crisis, with current studies showing that suicide in the farming sector has increased by 80 percent this year.

Sharma is a contemporary visual artist. Born in Jharkhand, India, Sharma formally studied painting in two of India's renowned art institutions. Working in New Delhi and Varanasi, India, and Grazlema, Spain, Sharma uses a wide range of media including drawing, painting, sculpture, conventional and revived techniques of photography, durational and site-specific installations, as well as new technologies.
