Myths, Memories and Miniatures: The Art of Shahzia Sikander
“Myths, Memories and Miniatures: The Art of Shahzia Sikander” by Shahzia Sikander (artist), Zehra Jumabhoy (art historian), Faisal Devji (historian)
New York-based Sikander will talk about her multi-media practice. Having trained at the National College of Art in Lahore in the 1980s, Sikander’s art draws on the miniature painting tradition prized there – only to subvert it. Sikander’s presentation will be followed by a panel discussion on the art and politics of South Asia with Zehra Jumabhoy (The Courtauld, London) and Faisal Devji (Oxford University).
