Change the way you see Asia at a brand new exhibition

Change the way you see Asia at a brand new exhibition

Take a trip into the mind of an award-winning artist from Pakistan at a multi-platform exhibition in Dundee this month.

Disrupting the Alignment is Naiza Khan’s first major exhibition in Scotland and will run from this Thursday until Saturday, February 15, in the Cooper Gallery.

Naiza uses her installation, which incorporates three films, photography, prints and watercolour, to highlight the effects that globalised urbanisation can have on a land and its people.

A graduate of Oxford University, Naiza Khan is now based in Karachi. Her work has been exhibited all over the world and she has held major solo exhibitions in Hong Kong, London, Dubai and Michigan among many others.

Last year she was awarded the prestigious Prince Claus award, as you can see in the photo below. The Prince Claus award is given to artists and individuals for outstanding achievements in the field of culture and development.

Sophia Hao the curator at the Cooper Gallery, said she is looking forward to the exhibition.

“It’s been about a year coming,” she said.

“Naiza is an incredibly well respected artist and promoter of contemporary art in Pakistan. She provides a very interesting new way of looking at the way western society views Pakistan and her work can really broaden your perspective in terms of how you see Asia.

“With this instalment, Naiza’s focused on globalised urbanisation. The films are great; in one of them she paints abandoned furniture from a school that collapsed and killed many inside. It’s a tribute to those who died and her reflection on a number of complex social issues in Pakistan, but I’ve always thought it was such a beautiful image.”

The Cooper Gallery will also feature a satellite exhibition with the work of three younger artists from Pakistan being displayed.

The art of Basir Mahmood, Seher Naveed and Fazal Rizvi will all be featured in the exhibition entitled At Intervals.

This second exhibition shares a number of thematic similarities to its parent exhibition but will be unveiled a week after Naiza’s on Thursday, January 23.
