Monica Jahan Bose
My paintings, works on paper, performances and installations are symbolic narratives. I move strategically across media to address complex issues and engage diverse audiences. I am Bangladeshi and American, an artist, lawyer, mother, and activist on women's issues and the environment.

Through the lens of my multi-faceted identity, my work addresses gender, women's literacy and sexuality, and climate change. The sari blouse and sari are recurring symbols in my work, standing-in for me, the female body, and women's place in the world.

My website is organized by media, series or installation, such as Performance Videos, Indelible Scent, Etchings, Drawings, and Open the Door, which can be seen by clicking on the corresponding thumbnails under "Portfolio."
