Set in a moment yet still movingNaiza Khan in front of painting: Recent works by Naiza Khan

Naiza Khan lives and works between London and Karachi. Her practice extends across painting, drawing, video and the performative speech act. Naiza’s concerns with the politics and aesthetics of the female body are rooted to the embodied experience of geography, exploring the continuity and disjunctures between different terrains and their entanglements.

As a founding member and former coordinator of the Vasl Artists’ Collective, Karachi she worked to foster art in the city, and participated in innovative art projects in partnership with Triangle Network. She curated The Rising Tide: New Directions in Art from Pakistan, 1990–2010 at the Mohatta Palace Museum, Karachi. She has been artist-in-residence at Cornell University, USA; Gasworks, London and the Rybon Art Center, Tehran. In 2013 Khan had her first retrospective: Karachi Elegies at the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum, Michigan State University; and received the Prince Claus Award for her exceptional initiatives in art and culture.
