Join us as artist, curator, and activist Naiza Khan discusses her work and the role of culture as resistance. Khan's work encompasses geographic space, social and political landscapes, gender, and the role of women in Pakistani society. «Aesthetically,» she says, «my process is being driven by content that is continuously in flux.» Making use of video, sculpture, painting, drawing, site-specific interventions, objects and print, Khan explores the relationship between land and history.

Naiza Khan is a professional advisor at the Department of Visual Studies, University of Karachi, Pakistan. Her work has been widely exhibited internationally, including at the Kochi-Muziris Biennale (2016), the Shanghai Biennale (2012) and exhibitions such as Hanging Fire: Contemporary Art from Pakistan at Asia Society, New York, USA (2009).

This program is being presented in partnership with the Seattle Art Museum's Gardner Center for Asian Art and Ideas.

Library events and programs are free and everyone is welcome. Registration is not required.
