Chila Kumari Singh Burman

Compton Verney is excited to present a new solo exhibition by one of the leading contemporary artists working in the UK today – Chila Kumari Singh Burman MBE (b.1957).

Opening in the autumn, the exhibition will present new and recent neon and sculptural works which have not been shown before, alongside earlier prints, collages and films. The works encompass a 40-year period in which Burman has explored her Punjabi cultural identity, feminism, and working class Liverpudlian upbringing, amongst other themes.

A large-scale intervention across the façade of the house, comprised of Burman’s signature neons, will accompany the exhibition.
