#Crow31Days | Day 11at Crow Collection of Asian Art
Born in Iran and raised in Pakistan, artist Nida Bangash draws upon Indo-Persian miniature painting tradition, a genre that uses precise brushwork and patterning. Using these techniques, Bangash applies symbolism and ornamentation to subtly address contemporary socio-political concerns.
In March 2017, the Crow Collection invited Bangash and ten high school students from across Dallas to spend spring break exploring works of art at the museum, learning about Indo-Persian miniature painting and patterning, and thinking deeply about what it means to be a woman in today’s world. Drawing upon these explorations, students created original works of art that speak to their experience of being female. Seeing Patterns, an exhibition of these works and original works of art by Bangash, is on view through June 3, 2017 at the Crow Collection.
The museum’s Education Department presents Seeing Patterns, an installation of work created by participants of all ages through their engagements with Nida Bangash.
