Mequitta Ahuja: Automythography

Mequitta Ahuja: Automythography 

Dodd Galleries

January - March 2015

Dodd Galleries Artist-in-Resident, Mequitta Ahuja, presented "Automythography," an exhibition of recent paintings.  The title is a term Auja uses to describe her practice and derives from Audre Lorde’s 1982 book Zami: A New Spelling of My Name, in which Lorde introduces the term ‘biomythography’ to describe the woven nature of myth, cultural history, and the notion of telling one’s story.
