A Railway Pilgrimage in Pakistan

As part of her solo exhibition Memorial for the lost pages at the Contemporary Art Gallery, Yaletown–Roundhouse Station hosts a suite of images from A Railway Pilgrimage in Pakistan, a collaboration that Pakistani artist Madiha Aijaz embarked on with the late New York–based writer Annie Khan in 2014. Aijaz’s photographs, which accompanied Khan’s essay, described Pakistan’s most famous (if slightly beleaguered) rail line, the Khyber Mail. Aijaz’s richly cinematic and intimate pictures offer complex meditations on pleasure, public space, and the legacies of colonialism.
