6 May-September 2010.

Since the early 1990s, Shahzia Sikander has been instrumental in the rediscovery, re-infusion and re-contextualisation of Indo-Persian miniature painting. Trained as a miniaturist at the National College of Arts in Lahore, Sikander has pioneered an experimental approach to the genre which encompasses painting, drawing, animation, installation, video and film. Her multi-dimensional creative process radically rearticulates the miniaturist tradition by inserting new dialogue that is often subversive and polemical in nature.
