Art from Pakistan

On Wednesday, April 21, Iftikhar Dadi of the Department of History of Art at Cornell University will give a talk titled “Art from Pakistan: From Modernism to the Contemporary Era” at 6 p.m. in Napier Hall 101 as part of the South Asia Speaker Series.

Dadi’s research interests include critical and postcolonial theory, and modern and contemporary art with emphasis on South and West Asia. His book, “Modernism and the Art of Muslim South Asia,” is forthcoming from the University of North Carolina Press in May 2010. He recently curated an exhibit in London called Calligraphic Abstraction: Anwar Jalal Shemza, which was included in ArtAsiaPacific magazine’s 2010 Almanac as among the most memorable exhibitions of Asian art. As an artist he collaborates with Elizabeth Dadi and has shown his work internationally.

Light refreshments will be served at the lecture. For more information, or special needs assistance, please contact Anthony Cerulli at
