Shahzia Sikander Selects: Works from the Permanent Collection

March 6, 2009 – September 7, 2009

Museum: Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum

Location: 1st Floor, Nancy and Edwin Marks Gallery

Internationally acclaimed artist Shahzia Sikander serves as the ninth guest curator of the Selects exhibition. Trained as a miniaturist at the National College of Arts in Lahore, Pakistan, Sikander merges the traditional South Asian art of miniature painting with contemporary forms and styles. Her work explores the relationship between the present and the past and the richness of multicultural identities. The exhibition also includes a new work created by Sikander, inspired by Cooper-Hewitt's collection.
