Space 204 (Vanderbilt University) / 1204 25th Ave. S., E. Bronson Ingram Studio Arts Center January 11, 2018 - February 1, 2018

Vibhu Krishna

The Vanderbilt University Department of Art and Space 204 welcome back the 2016 recipient of the Margaret Stonewall Wooldridge Hamblet Award, Vibhu Krishna for her return-solo exhibition opening on January 11, 2018 and closing on February 2, 2018.

Vibhu Krishna (b. 1994, Lubbock, TX) is a New York-based Indian-American artist, medical student, and yogi who explores the intersection of these three practices through rigorous academic and artistic inquiry. By utilizing meditative, intricate ink drawings as a platform for creating installation, her artwork, in combination with study of health and medicine, has the ultimate goal of healing.

Upon receiving the 2016 Margaret Stonewall Wooldridge Hamblet Award from Vanderbilt University (B.A.), Vibhu traveled extensively throughout southeast Asia, therein acquiring yoga teacher training and a deeper understanding of the origins of mind-body practice as a mechanism of healing. She currently attends Columbia University College of Physicians & Surgeons in New York City.

Open Studio will have a pop up yoga class component occurring January 12 through January 15. Each class session has a limited number of spaces for participants and will be led by the Vibhu Krishna and Matt Adan.

Visit openstudionashville.com for more information about the exhibition, the yoga component and instructions for registering for a class.

All exhibitions are free and open to the public.
