Exhibition

1947

FAHRAT CHAUDHRY

27TH SEPTEMBER- 14TH OCTOBER

1947 is part of British history. The exhibition tells the stories of migration of millions of people from that region. Farhat Chaudhry expresses herself by transferring these stories onto canvas, and in sketches, sculptures and film. The bold work expresses the suffering of people during the divide.

Join the artist for the opening of the exhibition on Saturday 29th September 6-8pm.
