This event has ended.

Extraction is a solo exhibition in ISCP’s Project Space featuring both new and existing work by Ayesha Kamal Khan, ISCP alumna and a recipient of The New York Community Trust’s Edward and Sally Van Lier Fund residency at ISCP. A series of small sculptures and drawings will be on view, accompanied by Khan’s first artist’s book, titled This Is Temporary. The publication is structured as a long-form poem with images of artwork throughout. The sculptures on view examine the concept of home and collective memory, evoke the precariousness of secure space, and allude to the temporary solutions we devise as we seek balance in our everyday surroundings.

Ayesha Kamal Khan (born 1987) graduated from the National College of Arts, Rawalpindi, Pakistan, 2011; earned an MFA from Pratt Institute, New York, 2015; and attended Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, 2015. Khan lives and works between Brooklyn and Islamabad. She has exhibited at art institutions internationally, including Art Chowk in Karachi, the Cuadro Gallery in Dubai, and the Queens Museum in New York.

This exhibition is coordinated by Alexandra Friedman, Program Coordinator at ISCP.
