THE WITTE LECTURE SERIES presents Shahzia Sikander

04.15.21

The Newport Beach Public Library's Witte Lecture Series presents Shahzia Sikander - Beauty, Power & Extraordinary Realities on Friday, April 16 at 6:19 p.m. on Zoom.

Pioneering Pakistani American artist Shahzia Sikander is one of the most influential artists working today. She is celebrated for her figurative painting, sculptures and installations inspired by traditional Persian miniatures.

Sikander will discuss her latest artwork, exhibitions, and forthcoming book Shahzia Sikander: Extraordinary Realities (2021, Hirmer Publishers). Learn how she expands and subverts traditional themes to explore cultural identity, gender, and other under-represented narratives. Sikander received a MacArthur Fellowship in 2006 and was awarded the State Department Medal of Arts in 2012. Her work has been exhibited around the world including the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Museum of Modern Art, Sydney; Irish Modern Museum of Art, Dublin; and the Guggenheim Museum, Bilbao.

In conversation with Meg Linton, Chief Executive Officer, Newport Beach Public Library Foundation.
