This monograph brings together Chila Kumari Burman's work of the last fifteen years with a though provoking text by Dr. Lynda Nead. Chila Kumari Burman was among a handful of artists whose families had settled in post-war Britain, and who emerged from art schools in the early 80's. Faced with an art establishment unwilling to recognise the individual cultural practices of such artists beyonf the stereotypes of ethnicity, Burman became part of a militant vanguard determined to gain their right to full participation in the nation's cultural life on their own terms- meaning, amongst other things, self-representation and artistic credibility. Burman has consistently used her own image in an ever-expanding repertoire of provocative and active female identities, complementing her artwork with polemical texts, curating exhibitions and community art projects. Confrontational yet celebratory, Chila Kumari Burman's work occupies an important position within issues of cultural identity, class and gender.
