CALL/VoCA Talk: Tara Sabharwal

This one is called Layered World... The world this person sees, it's like a mirage...a world on one surface, and a world below that, and a world above that. I see clues to all these different worlds and I put them together in myself into a reality. But it's never one thing...”

Tara Sabharwal

In this interview held on November 9, 2017, painter and printmaker Tara Sabharwal speaks with SFMOMA's Robin Clark about blending, building, and layering the canvas and paper surface into meta-scape compositions of thought; past with the present, and real with imaginary.

This event was one of a series hosted in partnership with VoCA to highlight the innovative CALL initiative while also underscoring the crucial need for dialogue with artists around the production, presentation, and preservation of their work. The full-length Talk is below, and transcripts of VoCA Talks are available upon request. Please direct queries to [email protected].
