Thursday, November 12, 2020 from 4-5 pm
Join us for a conversation with Siddhartha V. Shah, PEM’s Director of Education and Civic Engagement and Curator of Indian and South Asian Art, and artist Zarah Hussain. Based in London, Hussain works at the intersection of science and spirituality, combining contemporary digital art with rigorous training in traditional hand-drawn Islamic geometry. Her work encompasses infinitely looping animations made with code, interactive apps, painting and sculpture. The artist’s series of paintings will be on view at PEM beginning December 19, 2020 in the exhibition Zarah Hussain: Breath.
Conversation introduced by Trevor Smith, Associate Director – Multisensory Experience, Curator of the Present Tense, and Kerry Schneider, GenPEM and Development Communications Officer. For more information, contact Kerry Schneider at Kerry_Schneider@pem.org or visit pem.org/genpem.
