Canvas Gallery is pleased to present Descent, a solo exhibition by acclaimed Pakistani-Canadian artist Tazeen Qayyum, opening on Tuesday, February 20th, 2018 from 5pm to 8pm.
The exhibition traces Qayyum’s increasingly focused performance and drawing practices, mapping how these two modes construct, evolve and poetically inform each other. She masterfully uses her body as her medium; repetition and symmetry as aesthetic devices; and endurance, empathy and inner struggle and joy as measures of time to create unexpected drawings, videos and sculptures that run both forward and backward in time and space.
An alumna of the National College of Arts (NCA), Lahore, Tazeen Qayyum has exhibited in numerous international shows, received many awards, residencies, and grants and her works are part of distinguished public and private collections.
The exhibition continues daily until Thursday March 1st, 2018 from 11am to 8pm (excluding Sunday).
