Public Program - NYC
Tea Party

Saturday, June 10, 2017, 2 pm
291 Church Street, NYC

Join Lali Khalid, Madyha Leghari, Zoya Siddiqui, Bushra Rehman, Rabbya Naseer, and others, for a performative tea party addressing issues of identity and its performance through creative practices.

Taking the shape of a round-table discussion, Tea Party brings together female South Asian artists, researchers, performers, and curators. Utilizing the format of a Tea Party, the participants revisit, reflect, and simultaneously act out questions about identity, representation, and performance, and the accompanying risk of reinforcing the stereotypes that they aim to challenge (especially when addressing a western audience).

This event is free and open to the public.

Rabbya Naseer is engaged in the making, curating, writing, and teaching of Art. She has an undergraduate degree in Fine Arts from NCA, Lahore (2006), and is a 2008-2010 recipient of Fulbright scholarship for Masters in Art History, Theory and Criticism from SAIC, Chicago. Naseer’s practice is broadly concerned with exploring the parallels between Art and everyday life and highlighting the similarities (in production, representation, reception, interpretation) between the two. She has participated in exhibitions, residencies, and conferences in Pakistan, India, USA, UK, Dubai, China, Japan, Germany, and Netherlands.
