Mirchandani’s group shows include Marianne Boesky Gallery, New York City, curated by Amoako Boafo and Larry Ossei-Mensah (2022); Glass Rice Gallery, San Francisco (2021); Legion Projects, Healdsburg (2021); Knowhere Art Gallery, Martha’s Vineyard, New York (2021); Glass Rice Gallery, San Francisco (2020); California’s State Senator – Scott Wiener’s public offices, San Francisco (2019); Root Division, San Francisco (2019); Arc Gallery, San Francisco (2017-18).

As of May 2022, she was awarded the San Francisco Artist Grant (SFA) by the San Francisco Arts Commission. She has participated in multiple residencies including The Wassaic Project, Silver Arts Projects’ Digital Residency, Global Coralition, KYTA and Aegean Idea Lab.
