About the Lecture:
Part of programming related to the exhibition Doris Duke’s Shangri La: Architecture, Landscape, and Islamic Art
Pakistani-born, New York–based artist Shahzia Sikander, a former Shangri La artist in residence whose work is included in Doris Duke’s Shangri La: Architecture, Landscape, and Islamic Art, talks about her pioneering work and process, which takes Indo-Persian miniature painting as a point of departure. She challenges the strict formal tropes of miniature painting as well as its medium-based restrictions by experimenting with scale and media such as animation and mural.
