Nida Bangash in Conversation with Vicki Meek

February 22, 2020

Join Talley Dunn Gallery for a thought-provoking dialogue centered upon themes of gender, colonialism, and power.

Saturday, February 22 at 2 pm
Closing reception to follow from 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm


The History House is an exhibition of video installations, photographs, and paintings that explore contemporary legacies of colonialism. Nida Bangash’s highly conceptual works reveal the charged social and political undercurrents of the seemingly benign domestic sphere. The exhibition is titled after a symbol representing India’s history in Arundhati Roy’s novel The God of Small Things and considers Indo-Persian history’s continued relevance to the present. Trained in the traditions of miniature painting and carpet weaving, Bangash utilizes both formalism and conceptualism in her intricate and rigorously thought-provoking works, urging viewers to interrogate ideas of culture, location, and subjectivity.
