Rashid Rana was born in Lahore, Pakistan. He received a BFA from the National College of Arts, Lahore and an MFA at the Massachusetts College of Art, Boston. He is a globally recognized artist distinct for his ideas, imagery and pictorial strategies. He has developed a conceptually driven, well-informed art practice, which consists of a pixilated attention to formal concerns. His works revolve around a subtle simultaneous exploration of media and identity – both bound by a sharp political edge as he satirizes pop culture and looks to reinterpret varied elements of art and cultural history.
His work has been shown extensively around the world, especially at some prestigious galleries and museums like Chatterjee & Lal, Mumbai; Chemould Prescott Road, Mumbai; Cornerhouse, Manchester, UK & New Art Exchange, Nottingham, UK; Lisson Gallery, London, UK; Fotomuseum | Winterthur, Switzerland, and Whitechapel Gallery, London, UK; Saatchi Gallery, UK ; Lower Belvedere, Vienna; Asia Society, New York.
This catalogue was produced for Nasreen Mohamedi's retrospective exhibition 2004, at Jehangir Art Gallery.
The exhibition showcased many of never been exhibited before works, and together they traced Nasreen’s career from her earliest figurative drawings of the early 1960s right through to the late drawings that marked her last years. Included were also original photographic prints that were developed by Nasreen herself.
