Yaminay Chaudhri Artist Talk

Thursday, Apr 18, 2019 from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM

Location: Artspace, 50 Orange St, New Haven, CT 06510

There was Nothing – Kuch bhi Naheen Tha! is a living archive of fleeting activity taking place along one of Pakistan’s most popular and rapidly gentrifying public beaches.  For the past eight years, multimedia artist Yaminay Chaudhri has dedicated her practice to documenting the impact of rising global investment in speculative real estate in the port city of Karachi, Pakistan.

On Thursday, April 18 from 6-7:30pm, Chaudhri will present a lecture that examines aspiration and its alternate, exploring how a low-res image of a city might act as an insurgent to undermine the expectation of a “worlding” image.

This event is free and open for all.
