For the second session of Authorship & Agency talks, we have invited Salima Hashmi to join us from Pakistan via Skype to share with us her thoughts on art, music and the poetry of Lahore.

Salima Hashmi is a painter, art educationist, writer, and curator that represents the first generation of modern artists in Pakistan who carry an artistic identity different from indigenous artists. She was educated at the National College of Arts (NCA), Lahore, the Bath Academy of Art, U.K., and the Rhode Island School of Design, USA. She taught for 30 years at NCA, Pakistan’s premier art institution, and retired as its Principal. She has exhibited her own work, traveled and lectured extensively all over the world, and has curated about a dozen international art shows in the U.K., Europe, the USA, Australia, Japan, and India. She is a recipient of The President’s Award for Pride of Performance, Pakistan. She also co-founded Lahore’s Rohtas 2 Gallery, an art gallery featuring works of young artists in Pakistan.
