About Rina Banerjee

Born in Kolkatta, India, Banerjee grew up in London; Manchester, England; Philadelphia; and New York. She began her career as a polymer research chemist and later earned a master’s degree in fine art (painting) from Yale in 1995. After graduating, she taught classes in studio practice, art theory, and feminist art. Banerjee has exclusively practiced her studio art now for over twenty years. She has lent two works for display in the Center’s upcoming exhibition Art in Focus: Women From the Center that tie together themes explored in the exhibition and capture the essence of all art-making: the human imagination.

Banerjee’s work has been exhibited internationally and can be found in private and public collections worldwide. Her exhibitions have spanned thirteen biennials, including the 57th Venice Biennial, Kochi Biennial, Cairo Biennial, and Yokohama Biennial.
