Salima Hashmi, Priyanka Chhabra, Krittika Kumari
The year 2022 marks the 75th anniversary of the Partition in the subcontinent. On this occasion, we bring together artists Salima Hashmi and Priyanka Chhabra in an intergenerational conversation that will explore the making of art in post-Partition India and Pakistan. The talk will expand upon their personal and familial understanding of the Partition, and how it has influenced their individual art practices.
The conversation will be moderated by Krittika Kumari, Digital Editor at MAP and author of MAP’s visual essay, Art as Witness: 75 Years of Partition, in collaboration with ZVM Rangoonwala Foundation featuring works from the VM Art Gallery Permanent Collection, which looks at artistic responses to the Partition across India and Pakistan.
This event is part of MAP’s series Beyond Borders. This August and September, MAP commemorates the 75th year of India’s independence, with events around the theme Beyond Borders. Over the next two months, we explore and critique the concept of borders via multiple registers – history, geography, identity, and migration. Witness global practitioners and experts in conversation with each other, reimagining the meaning and significance of borders.
