Sutapa Biswas

Born, 1962 in Bolpur, India

The Transforming the Crown catalogue has Sutapa Biswas’ birthplace as being Santinekethan, India. Sutapa Biswas‘ work was included in the book Shades of Black: Assembling Black Arts in 1980s Britain. She was on “The Thematics and Aesthetic Shifts in Practice since the 1980s” panel at the Shades of Black conference, 20 April 2001, Duke University. She was also on the conference’s Summation panel.

Biswas contributed an illustrated text - To kill two birds with one stone - to Beyond Frontiers: Contemporary British Art by Artists of South Asian Descent, Saffron Books, 2001. The book described itself as marking “the first attempt to survey the work of contemporary British artists whose ancestral roots lie in the countries and cultures of South Asia. For some, their links with the Subcontinent remain present and immediate; for others, they are a barely perceptible trace, filtered through generations of exile and migration.”
