Join Equality Now for a cozy conversation and Q&A with the groundbreaking visual artist, Shahzia Sikander, to discuss how she interweaves contemporary issues into her unique artistic work. Sikander is a pioneer of ‘Neo-Miniature’. Her three decade long oeuvre has brought historical Indo-Persian book arts into the forefront of contemporary art dialogue. Informed by South Asian, American, Feminist and Muslim perspectives, Sikander has developed a unique, critically charged approach to this time-honored medium – employing its continuous capacity for reinvention to interrogate ideas of language, trade and empire, and migration. Her works encompass painting, drawing, animation, installation, video and sculpture. A recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship (2006) and the State Department Medal of Arts (2012), Sikander’s innovative work has been surveyed in solo exhibitions at MAXXI Museo Rome (2016-2017), the Asia Society Hong Kong (2016), the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao (2015), the Irish Museum of Modern Art (2007) and the Whitney Museum of American Art (2000) among others. Hosted by Equality Now board member, Patricia Amira.
