Riassunto: Over the past 17 years, Shahzia Sikander has worked within the tradition of Indo-Persian miniature painting--creating a dialogue with a traditional form of art while engaging in a transformative task. Over the years, she has built a practice which seeks to understand miniature painting's historical significance as well as its contemporary relevance. This artist's book, which features many paper changes, gatefolds and a die-cut cover, brings the reader through Sikander's practice, which now embraces various media, from drawing and painting to animation. It accompanies Sikander's first major solo museum exhibition in Europe--at the Irish Museum of Modern Art in Dublin--and provides an overview of her work up to 2006. It features essays by the noted Harvard cultural theorist Homi Bhabha and the exhibition curator and noted writer on Modern and contemporary art, Sean Kissane.
L'autore: Shahzia Sikander was born in 1969 in Lahore, Pakistan, and now lives and works in Houston and New York City. After studying in Pakistan she received her MFA from the Rhode Island School of Design. Her work has been exhibited at the Whitney Biennial 1997, and as part of the Whitney's "The American Century," and has also been featured in galleries and museums on four continents.
