MCLA Gallery 51 – Featured Artist Anina Major

Since May, MCLA’s Gallery 51 has highlighted and showcased talented artists from the Berkshire community and across the globe during our live virtual Featured Artist segments. Anina Major joined us in August to discuss her practice, answer questions in real time, and provide a studio tour through the video call. Anina is is an artist who works to cultivate moments of reflection and a sense of belonging. Her work draws from anthropological research and oral histories to challenge postcolonial ideology and advocate for critical dialogue around developing cultural identities. The work unpacks the emotional complexities inherent to the transcultural dialogue that surfaces when mapping the migration of traditions versus foreign influences.
