Girl Gaze: Journeys Through The Punjab & The Black Country at Blast! Photo Festival
Girl Gaze: Journeys Through The Punjab & The Black Country will be exhibited at Blast! Photo Festival in the Black Country, United Kingdom. The festival opens on 24th May and closes on 29th June.
Girl Gaze includes projects by Uzma Mohsin, Andrea Fernandes, Jennifer Pattison and myself. The work was commissioned by Creative Black Country and Multistory with support from the Nazar Foundation with funding from the British Council’s Reimagine India (a cultural exchange programme investing in creative collaborations between art and cultural organisations in England and in India). Iona Fergusson is curating the exhibition again.
I first got an email about getting involved with the project at the end of 2016, and the show (which includes my series You Will Live In This World As A Daughter) was exhibited in India last year.
The work will be shown at: British Muslim School, Lodge Road, West Bromwich, B70 8NX.
You can book free tickets for an exhibition tour on Saturday 25th May at 12pm here.
Asian Women & Cars: Road to Independence by Dawinder Bansal will be shown at the same venue.
The festival programme for Blast! is available here.
I did my first ever workshop, Hiding and Revealing: Performing Within Your Practice, for students at London College of Communication, UK.
It included photography, video, writing, improv, clowning and live art exercises.
