Lahore-based Aisha Khalid is one of Pakistan’s leading contemporary artists. She is part of a generation that has revitalised the traditional medium of miniature painting by juxtaposing decorative surfaces with deep socio-political subtexts around ideas about cultural expectations and stereotyping, the oppression of women and global politics in the aftermath of 9/11. Embroidery is also a recurring theme in Khalid’s work, reflecting her familiarity with the embroidery traditions of regions such as Sind and Punjab. Essay by Amna Tirmizi Naqvi.
