Save Event: Anwar Shemza

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


An intimate evening of conversation and reflection on the work of pioneering painter Anwar Shemza, who moved from Lahore to Britain in 1956.


Taking place within the Shemza display at Tate Britain, this discussion, chaired by Amna Malik (UCL) features panellists including artist Aphra Shemza and Iftikhar Dadi (Cornell), editor of the recent Shemza monograph and artist Shezad Dawood. How did Shemza’s experience of migration and diaspora affect his painting? What was his relationship with the work of other artists of his era? Where can his influence be found today?

Followed by a drinks reception.

With support from the Estate of Anwar Jalal Shemza and Jhaveri Contemporary.
