Fatima Hussain

Fatima Hussain is an Artist-Curator based in Lahore and Islamabad, Pakistan. She currently teaches at the National College of Arts, Pakistan and Co-directs Other Asias from Lahore. As a co-founder of the collective she has been involved in activating chains of exhibitions, film screenings, fictions, forums, performances and events that challenge contemporary navigations of “Asia” as a region and the-world-at-large via a collaborative curatorial practice.  Fatima’s work over the last few years has addressed multiple issues, bringing into it the political, the historical, the everyday, and whether with intention or escape, ‘art’ for her, has fallen within a larger interpretation of the colonized structures, languages and territory. Her recent curatorial projects include SLICE (a web-based collaboration that maps specific areas of Lahore and London), Redo Pakistan (a project engaged with the history of Pakistan from its inception and the contested legacy of partition, Jinnah to current concerns with nuclear warfare and jihad). She has presented projects at the Shanakht Festival Karachi, SPILL Festival 2011 (London), Aicon Gallery London, The Guild NY, Zahoor-ul-Akhlaq Gallery, RichMix London and many others.
