T2F is delighted to announce Art Moments, a monthly event designed to discuss and discover important moments in Pakistan’s art history through interviews. Curated by Niilofur Farrukh, Art Moments aims to contribute to the documentation of Pakistani art history through forgotten narratives.
The inaugural session of Art Moments features Zaheda Hina, who will share her research on Attiya Fayzee, an outstanding South Asian intellectual. At the time of Partition, Attiya Fayzee moved from Mumbai at the request of Jinnah and set up Aiwan-e-Riffat in Karachi where she and her husband, the renowned painter, Fayzee Rahamin, hosted local artists and writers. Well known for her vibrant and opinionated personality, she is also remembered for her scathing critique of Zubeida Agha, the pioneer modernist’s first art exhibition in Karachi.
Zaheda Hina is an eminent writer and journalist with four anthologies of short stories, a novel, and numerous collections of articles to her credit. Zaheda is a peace activist and an ardent supporter of human, democratic and women’s rights. Through her writing, she has strongly condemned the nuclear blasts in India and Pakistan and has campaigned tirelessly for peace in South Asia.
