RISD Museum, Providence, Rhode Island
Pakistani American artist Shahzia Sikander is internationally celebrated for bringing Indo-Persian miniature-painting traditions into dialog with contemporary art practice. This exhibition tracks the first 15 years of her artistic journey, from her groundbreaking deconstruction of miniature painting in Pakistan to the development of a new personal vocabulary at the Rhode Island School of Design, as well as the Glassell School of Art at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, where she was a Core fellow, as well as her global outlook during her first years in New York.
