Shazia Sikander and RISD Museum
Pakistani-born and internationally recognized, Sikander’s (RISD MFA, 1995 Painting/Printmaking) pioneering practice 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. In this lecture, Sikander reflects on her time at RISD and the work she created in the 1990s.
Endowed in 1974 by her family and friends, the Gail Silver Memorial Lecture at the RISD Museum is open to the public.
