Shahzia Sikander



Shahzia Sikander received her BFA from the National College of Arts, Lahore, Pakistan and her MFA from the Rhode Island School of Design. Pakistani-born and internationally recognized, Sikander’s 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. Such media include animation, video, mural, and collaboration with other artists. Her process-based work is concerned with examining the forces at stake in contested cultural and political histories. Her work helped launch a major resurgence in the Miniature Painting department in the Nineties at the National College of Arts in Lahore, inspiring many others to examine the miniature tradition. Sikander's work has appeared in numerous solo and group exhibitions throughout the United States and Europe, the Far East and the Middle East. She has been the beneficiary of numerous awards and fellowships. Her work may be found in the collection of The Museum of Modern Art, New York, The Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Park, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Museum of Fine Arts Boston, Detroit Institute of Arts, Philadelphia Museum of Fine Arts, Museum of Contemporary Art Los Angeles, Royal Ontario Museum, The Walker Art Center, Centro Nazionale per le Arti Contemporanea Rome, Art Gallery of New South Wales, and The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, among many others.
