I do not want to be there when it happens
11 November – 24 December, 2017
PICA Galleries - Perth Cultural Centre, 51 James Street, Northbridge, Perth, WA
2017 is the 70th anniversary of the Partition of India and Pakistan (14 August 1947) that saw the departing British colonial powers divide the country:
In tribute to the anniversary of the Partition, this exhibition features artists from both Pakistan and India whose evocative practices convey the profound existential unease of our age, either directly or indirectly. They unravel the present time, dealing with the legacy of history, as well as foretelling the future.
PIA was given the honour of officially opening the exhibition and provide refreshment: Northbridge medical centre kindly sponsor the catering for the opening night.
