Mapping ArtSouthAsia: A Visual and Cultural Dialogue between Britain and South Asia
In 2002 Shisha initiated the 'ArtSouthAsia' programme, which encompassed a series of exhibitions and residencies from Pakistan, India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, in Preston, Manchester, Oldham and Liverpool. This series of exhibitions was contextualised and reflected upon in a ground-breaking conference held at Manchester Art Gallery. Curators, artists, critics and art educationists from South Asia and Britain gave insights into the visual cultures of the international Indian subcontinent and its diaspora. 'Mapping ArtSouthAsia' commemorates the work and informed perceptions of these pioneers of South Asian art and culture and is the legacy of the unique and ground-breaking programme. 'Mapping ArtSouthAsia' offers an exclusive insight into a new visual and academic discourse between the peoples of South Asia and the peoples of the West and celebrates the visual and conceptual memories of 'ArtSouthAsia'.
