This event has ended.

The exhibition features new work by the artist. Culling information from a range of sources, across different cultures and time periods, Shahzia Sikander uses painting and drawing, moving pictures and music, text and imagery, to create artwork that subverts notions of authority and its joust with time. "Stalemate" will feature a series of drawings and paintings entitled "Mapping the End of Something." Invoking imagination and inventiveness, myth and ideology, Sikander constructs an open pictorial space that is rich, engaging, transparent, layered and tactile.
