Althea Thauberger converses with Karachi-based curator Zarmeene Shah about the artist’s lens-based practice, and about the production of her most recent work in Pakistan. This discussion also serves to tether together the solo exhibition by Thauberger titled Pagal Pagal Pagal Pagal Filmy Duniya with that of the late Karachi-based photographer and filmmaker Madiha Aijaz titled Memorial for the lost pages, presented simultaneously at the Contemporary Art Gallery (CAG). Shah, a close colleague of both Thauberger and Aijaz, co-curated Aijaz’s exhibition with CAG Curator Kimberly Phillips.
Presented by Capture Photography Festival in partnership with the Contemporary Art Gallery and Inform Interiors and supported in part by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada and the Department of Art History, Visual Art and Theory at UBC.
