Jui Mhatre, Project Assistant
Jui Mhatre, Project Assistant

Born and raised in Mumbai, India, Jui complemented her undergraduate education in Fine Art with education in classical Indian dance Bharatanatyam. She worked as a type-font designer in Indian languages and concurrently taught and performed dance in India for more than a decade. In 2008, she moved to the United States of America. This move brought a new geographic and cultural context that broadened her work as an artist. The experiences of being an immigrant have fueled her imagination for creating new performances. She has appeared in several performances in the United States, United Kingdom, and Canada. As an interdisciplinary artist she mixes dance practice with elements of design, and other media such as video. In 2014, Jui received MA in Performance and Creative Research from University of Roehampton, London, UK. She is always very interested in collaborations.

Jui has been volunteering as project assistant at the BMA since January 2015. She has always enjoyed the range of exhibitions, performances, movies screenings, and lectures at the museum and is pleased to have the opportunity to be part of it.

She is a member of World Friendship: International Women’s Organization in Manhattan and offers Indian dance classes at UFM Community Learning Center.​
