The opening night of Manchester’s 2018 Asia Triennial, Europe’s only Triennial dedicated to contemporary visual art on the theme of Asia, features a talk from Qasim.
Qasim Riza Shaheen: The day after the day before I sinned
Fri 5 October, 19:15, Room 1, HOME
Poignantly adorned and costumed, five brides wait, in anticipation, for rites of passage, which in this work, shifts our attention from the actual beloved to an imagined one. Using live and audio soundtracks, the five brides-in-waiting lip sync and gesture through archetypes of longing and desire.
The event is free.
