Mithu Sen lives and works in New Delhi, India. She completed her BFA (1995) and MFA (1997) from Kala Bhavan, Santiniketan, Visva Bharati, India; and PG Programme from the Glasgow School of Art 2000-2001, UK. Sen‘s practice stems from a conceptual and interactive background woven into drawing, poetry, moving images, installations, sculptures, sound and performances. With LIFE being the medium of her practice, she pushes the limits of acceptable language, questioning our pre-codified hierarchical etiquettes in society within the politics of tabooed (cultural and gendered) identity / psycho-sexuality, radical hospitality and lingual anarchy.
She has exhibited widely at museums, institutions, including, Kenpoku Art, Northern Ibaraki Prefecture, Japan (2016); PEM (Peebody Essex Museum) USA, (2016); Art Unlimited, Basel (2016); Albertina Museum, Vienna (2015); Queens Museum, New York, (2015); Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum, USA, (2014); Kochi Muziris Biennale, India, (2014); Dhaka Art Summit, Dhaka, Bangladesh (2014); Galerie Krinzinger, Vienna, (2014); TATE Modern, London, (2013); Bozar Museum, Brussels, (2013); Gallery Nathalie Obadia, Paris (2012, 2013); Mediations Biennale, Poznań , Poland (2012); Zachęta National Gallery of Art, Warsaw (2011)
