Where Do You Want Ghosts to Reside?

Southern Exposure

This group project curated by Artist-Curators Azin Seraj and Zulfikar Ali Bhutto will rearticulate historic narratives of the Middle East, North Africa, and South Asia, examining ways in which nationalistic stories are told in support of oppressive ideologies and biases. Six visual artists from Iran, Pakistan, India, and Egypt utilize the transformative power of telling their own histories to untangle and rework problematic pasts and forgotten Islamic myths.


This is what SF/Arts curator Christian L. Frock has to say about Where Do You Want Ghosts to Reside? :

Curated by Azin Seraj and Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, this exhibition reconsiders historic narratives of the Middle East, North Africa, and South Asia and features works by Morehshin Allahyari, Heba Y. Amin, Anum Awan, Arshia Haq, Shirin Fahimiand Umber Majeed. In centering the perspectives of artists from Iran, Pakistan, India, and Eqypt, the exhibition undermines malignant presidential politics.
