The inaugural Asia Society Triennial, a festival of art, ideas, and innovation, is slated to run October 27, 2020 through June 27, 2021. Featuring 40 artists and 18+ commissioned works, this first edition of the Asia Society Triennial, titled We Do Not Dream Alone, will be composed of a multi-venue exhibition, interdisciplinary panels, forums, and performances.
Hamra Abbas’s work will be on view during Part 1 of the Triennial (October 27–February 7). Trained in the South Asian miniature painting tradition, Hamra Abbas’s multidisciplinary practice is inspired by her personal encounters. The artist transforms these experiences, taking an image, icon, or gesture and altering their scale, medium, or form. Her diverse body of work often interrogates notions of cultural history, sexuality, violence, ornamentation, and faith.
