Omer Wasim & Saira Sheikh's first project, as an artist duo, opens at Canvas Gallery on Tuesday, 16th of August, 2016, from 5 p.m. - 8 p.m.
They work together and in lieu of depoliticising or aestheticising politics, attempt to politicise aesthetics, and radically (“from Latin radix, radic- ‘root’”) reconfigure, re-articulate, and disrupt existing and complacent modes of critical engagement and artistic production, by casting a retrospective glance at the present.
Omer Wasim has a BFA in Interdisciplinary Sculpture and an MA in Critical Studies from the Maryland Institute College of Art, and Saira Sheikh has a BFA in Miniature Painting from the National College of Arts and an EdM in Art and Art Education from Teachers College, Columbia University.
The show continues daily until Thursday August 25th 2016 , from 11 am - 8 pm
( excluding sunday )
