  • (1888PressRelease) September 08, 2011 - New Delhi: Copal Art, India's leading art advisory art bank, announces the 20th Copal Dialogue on artist Zarina Hashmi's art work 'Shadow House' on Saturday, September 10, 2011 at 6:30 p.m. at the India International Centre Annexe. Roobina Karode, art historian, educator, writer and curator will be the speaker and commentator. The talk will be presided by Ashok Vajpeyi, Chairman of Copal Art. The subject of the talk is "Meditations on the notion of Musafir and Makaan".

    ''Copal Dialogue'', organized by Copal, is an ongoing series of regularly scheduled, interactive seminars that involves an art critic discussing a single work of art. The goal is to help the audience understand various elements around composition, perspective, interpretation and artists' inspirations so that one obtains real insights into the artwork; seeking participation from artists, curators, collectors and other art enthusiasts.

    On its 20th dialogue Copal Art presents a discussion on the contemporary abstract art work of the New York based artist, Zarina Hashmi. Zarina prefers to carve instead of draw the line, to gouge the surface rather than build and frequently creates series of several prints in order to reference a multiplicity of locales or concepts. Her work poignantly chronicles her life and recurring themes such as home, displacement, borders, journey and memory. An avid traveller, her art mirrors the multiple meanings that the word 'home' has for her. Her work is in the permanent collections of the Bibliothèque Nationale, Paris and the Victoria & Albert Museum, London.

    Art historian, educator, writer and curator, Roobina Karode has been involved with the teaching of Art History, both Indian and Western at various institutions mainly the School of Arts & Aesthetics, JNU, The National Museum Institute, College of Art and the Jamia Millia Islamia University, New Delhi. . Roobina has post-graduate specialization in Art History and in Education from the MS University of Baroda.
