Par Nair (she/her) is an Indian-born interdisciplinary artist, researcher and educator who lives and makes in the Toronto area. Her practice centres hand embroidery, oil painting, installation, and creative writing to explore lived experiences of diaspora using decolonial methods and a return to ancestral practices. Par has shown her works nationally and internationally with notable showings at Textile Museum of Canada, Nuit Blanche Toronto, Kochi Biennale (Kerala, India), Eastern Edge Gallery (St. John's, Newfoundland), Hamilton Artists Inc and Riverdale Gallery. Her recent work is an attempt to unravel and reimage historical narratives of Indian women. Par currently teaches drawing at OCAD University.
