In 2001, Stephen Huyler, art historian, cultural anthropologist, photographer and author, first traveled to the remote central Indian village of Puhputra in the state of Chhatisgarh to document the life of Sonabai Rajawar for a chapter in his book, Daughters of India. Impressed by Sonabai's home, her art and her life story, he resolved to collect the material for an exhibition and book solely about her, now realized in the innovative exhibition and publication SONABAI – Another Way of Seeing. In this fascinating lecture, Dr. Huyler will share Sonabai’s story, contextualize her work and discuss how her vision and creativity can be universally inspiring.
