Artist Talk | Performance Lecture

Starts - Wednesday 15 February 2023

Shazia Salam is a multidisciplinary artist currently working in Dubai. After completing her B.Arch at Manipal Institute of Technology, Karnataka (2015), she received her Postgraduate Diploma in Fine Arts at the University of the Arts London (2018).

While living in London, she exhibited her work around the city as part of the collective, 5in5.

In 2019 she was one of the residents at Dharti Residency in Delhi, after which she exhibited her work at the Serendipity Arts Festival in Goa. Later that year, her work was part of the GallerySKE booth at India Art Fair. More recently, she has participated in group exhibitions in Dubai such as Covid Conversations (2020) at Tashkeel and Only Time Will Tell (2021) at The Kave in Alskerkal Avenue.

Shazia’s practice is a negotiation with her displaced cultural belonging. She looks for answers in amateur mechanisms constructed from professional objects. Her work is often an invitation to interact - to touch, hold or destroy.

The artist invites visitors to collectively listen to excerpts of her research undertaken during the year-long programme. The evening begins with a compilation of incidents, anecdotes and echoes of disseminated voices that Shazia has collected along the way to provoke a discussion on the rhythm of work under capitalist structures.
