Shahzia Sikander: Apparatus of Power

A Decolonizing Vision Speaker Series artist talk with Shahzia Sikander. This talk will explore Sikander’s pioneering practice that takes classical Indo-Persian miniature painting as its point of departure and challenges the strict formal tropes of the genre by experimenting with scale and various forms of new media. 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.
