Manjari Sharma is a Los Angeles-based artist who was born and raised in Mumbai, India, and who makes art that addresses issues of memory, identity, multiculturalism, and personal mythology. After moving to New York City, she gained notoriety for her long-term project, The Shower Series. With this series, Sharma began creating work that was just as much about the materiality of water as it was about the inner landscape of the human mind. Expanding her art practice, Sharma has continued incorporating sound, motion, projection, and collage into her work. Sharma's project Darshan, published by Nazraeli press, is a photographic re-imagining of Hindu deities that garnered her wide critical acclaim. In 2017, The Metropolitan Museum of Art commissioned Sharma to create a collaborative piece that received international praise and recognition.
Widely-celebrated and exhibited around the world, she has won numerous awards and is in the collections of major institutions, including The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, the Carlos Museum at Emory University, and the Birmingham Museum of Art, among many others. Works from her projects have been published, exhibited, and traveled to galleries, museums, and festivals worldwide.
