Talk | The Mughals, the Moderns and Now: Art & Politics in South Asia

Talk | Dr. Zehra Jumabhoy
 
What unites India and Pakistan? On the midnight hour of the 14 August 1947, two nations were born: a ‘secular’ India, and a ‘Muslim’ Pakistan. We know what divides them, but art historian and critic Dr. Zehra Jumabhoy will examine contemporary Indian and Pakistani art in the context of what unites them: the Mughal past.
.
Dr. Zehra Jumabhoy is an art critic and art historian specialising in contemporary South Asian art and has contributed to Frieze, London; ArtAsiaPacific, New York, Art Review Asia, London and contributed to various publications on contemporary art by Phaidon. Dr. Zehra continues to be a regular reviewer for Artforum International, New York, and the London Correspondent for ART India.
