Virginia Whiles

We are happy, that the anthropologist Virginia Whiles followed our invitation to hold a lecture within our Global Academy lecture series this year.

Her talk is entitled Contemporary art in Pakistan: Contrasts between local and global perspectives and will relate diverse aspects of the art world in Pakistan. Following a brief historical introduction, the contemporary scene will be contextualised through references to its geo-socio-political interactions and constraints, with particular focus on gender issues.

Since Virginia Whiles is also an author, who writes reviews for both western and South Asian journals, she will describe Pakistan’s situation within a globalised perspective, as well as its close yet tence rapport with India.

Swing by on 21. August at 7 p.m. at Galerie 5020, Salzburg.

If you are interested in more information, check out her article about the Venice Biennale 2015, which had the first Indo-Pak joint pavillon and her review of the shows of Indian artist Rina Banerjee and Pakistani artist Imran Qureshi.
