Details

On view April 1 – May 10.

This exhibition features work by photographer Shivaraju B.S. from Bangalore, India. Best known by his nickname, Cop Shiva, acquired from working as a policeman for nearly 10 years, he began taking photographs while working on his beat. The images are from his most celebrated series, On Being Gandhi, in which he documents the performances of Byagadehalli Basavaraju, a village schoolteacher who routinely impersonates Mahatma Gandhi walking through village streets, in school playgrounds and among reverent or curious bystanders. This exhibition was curated by the Frank Museum of Art at Otterbein University and is presented at USD in conjunction with the ASIANetwork conference.

This event is open to the public
