Anindita Dutta is an Indian sculptor, installation and performance artist presently residing in New York. Dutta creates expressive, heart-wrenchingly raw, honest, and intensely personal works of art employing wet clay and repurposed clothing, informed by critical analysis. Themes that predominate her work include gender conflict and fragility – as well as the impermanence and permanence of existence. She completed her BFA (Sculpture) from Visva Bharati University, India in 1999 and her MA (Sculpture/ceramics) from Purdue University in 2003. She completed her MFA (Sculpture) from the University of Iowa in 2005. Dutta is a recipient of the Fukuoka Asian Art Museum Artist Residency Grant, the Pollock-Krasner Foundation grant, a residency at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture and the UNESCO-Aschberg Bursaries for Artists Fellowship. Her works are in the collections of the Fukuoka Asian Art Museum, the Arthur M. Sackler Museum of Art in Beijing, the Clarinda Carnegie Art Museum, the Francis J. Greenburger Collection, Arthur M. Sackler; Karen and Robert Duncan and Marc and Kathy LeBaron.
