Description

Edmund Capon AM, OBE, Chair of the Board of 4A, and
Mikala Tai, Director of 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art
invite you to join us at the opening of:

Nursa Latif Qureshi: Strategies of Intent

Exhibition opening: 6-8PM, Thursday 22 August


You are invited to join 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art on Thursday, 22 August as we open the exhibition Nusra Latif Qureshi: Strategies of Intent.

Nusra Latif Qureshi’s first solo Australian institutional exhibition presents her ongoing investigation into the symbolism and assumptions embedded in art history. Reflecting on almost two decades of practice Qureshi’s attempts to undermine, shift and negate historical imagery reads as a caution for the contemporary age, where assumed realities can be little more than constructed visions.

Qureshi’s practice is characterised by meticulous layering, fragmentation, erasure and juxtaposition of visual material. Through these acts of intervention, she investigates little known histories of colonial eras, questions established narratives and engages with the politics of representation. Taking the visual histories of both the South Asian region and Australian culture Qureshi has developed a new visual vernacular in which to examine and interrogate historicisation.

Strategies of Intent brings together key works from Qureshi’s oeuvre as well as work commissioned by 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art. With a practice that spans over two decades this exhibition brings her ongoing excavations of art history into dialogue. Presented together for the first time this exhibition enables the breadth and depth of Qureshi’s practice – from small and highly detailed paintings to large scale digital prints – to be appreciated.



This opening event starts at 6:00PM with drinks and an opening address.

Click to RSVP to this special event by Friday 9 August.

Exhibition runs 23 August - 29 September 2019.
Curated by Mikala Tai. Curatorial Assistant Nanette Orly.
