Trade Paperback Used-Like New The alchemy of Shahzia Sikander's work commingles the age-old tradition of miniature painting with explicitly modern media, revealing the tensions ... and imbrications in the iconographies of West and East, of Islam, Hinduism, and Christianity, and of past and present. The lush, jewel-like pigments and remarkable draughtmanship of Sikander's pieces, as well as the fragile and provocative beauty of her tissue drawing installations, are exquisitely reproduced in this catalogue, which complements the 1999 exhibition of her work at the University of Chicago's Renaissance Society. The book features an insightful introductory essay, 'Translated Pleasures, ' by historian Faisal Devji, in which he compares Sikander's work to the poetic riddles of the ghaza tradition.

More About This Book

Overview

Over the past 17 years, Shahzia Sikander has worked within the tradition of Indo-Persian miniature painting—creating a dialogue with a traditional form of art while engaging in a transformative task. Over the years, she has built a practice which seeks to understand miniature painting's historical significance as well as its contemporary relevance. This artist's book, which features many paper changes, gatefolds and a die-cut cover, brings the reader through Sikander's practice, which now embraces various media, from drawing and painting to animation. It accompanies Sikander's first major solo museum exhibition in Europe—at the Irish Museum of Modern Art in Dublin—and provides an overview of her work up to 2006. It features essays by the noted Harvard cultural theorist Homi Bhabha and the exhibition curator and noted writer on Modern and contemporary art, Sean Kissane.
