I'm excited for Blast! where Girl Gaze: Journeys Through the Punjab and the Black Country, UK will be shown in the UK for the first time. The festival opens on 24th May and runs until 29th June.
Girl Gaze includes my project You Will Live In This World As A Daughter as well as projects by Uzma Mohsin, Jennifer Pattison and Andrea Fernandes that were commissioned by Creative Black Country and Multistory with support from the Nazar Foundation. The show will be curated by Iona Fergusson.
The exhibition had its first opening a year ago in Chandigarh, India so I'm looking forward to seeing it all again closer to home (and I was born in Birmingham so it's the closest that I've exhibited to where I grew up so that's cool, right?)
Also can't wait to see all the other work and commissions in the festival - looks like a great line-up! :)
