Empire Follows Art
This focused seminar on Sikander’s early works (some of which were made during her time at RISD) will provide some context of her recent exhibitions. Notably, the session will focus on the 2016 exhibition curated by Claire Brandon, Shahzia Sikander: Apparatus of Power at the Asia Society Hong Kong and the accompanying 300-page monograph edited by Brandon. Together the artist and curator will discuss some of the early works in the exhibition as well as the thematics in the presentation of works that were first developed by the artist in the 90s. Brandon and Sikander will also provide students with insight on the artist interview and studio visit as it pertains to the curator-artist relationship.
