Event Description
Join us for a guest lecture with Dr. Saleema Waraich, where she will be presenting her paper, “Between Pakistan and New York: Contemporary Women Painters in the Diaspora."
This lecture examines the works of three contemporary female artists who trained in miniature painting in Lahore, Pakistan and presently reside in New York City. Despite their shared background, each artist takes a distinctive approach to this once devalued and now reclaimed tradition, shaped variously by their differing experiences of relocation, marginalization, and exoticization.
Saleema Waraich is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Art History and the Asian Studies Program at Skidmore College. Previously she was a Post-Doctoral Fellow in the Aga Khan Program for Islamic Architecture at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (AKPIA@MIT), a Mellon Post-Doctoral Fellow at Smith College, and an Assistant Curator of South Asian art at the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco. She received her Ph.D. in Art History and a graduate concentration certificate in Women's Studies at the University of California, Los Angeles. Her research engages with a variety of issues involving the early modern era in South Asia, encounters between the "East" and "West", colonialism, nationalism, and the politics of representation.
