Hajra Waheed

Hajra Waheed’s work seeks to address personal, national and cultural identity formation in relation to political history, popular imagination and the broad impact of colonial power within a global context. Her mixed media practice consists of on-going bodies of work that continue to amass a growing personal archive- one in response to all those seemingly lost amongst rapid regional development and/or political strife. Over the last decade, Waheed has participated in exhibitions worldwide, most recently including: The Cyphers, BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead, UK (2016); Still Against the Sky, KW Berlin, DE (2015); L’avenir, La Biennale de Montréal, Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal, QC (2014); Sea Change, Experimenter, Kolkata (2013); (In) the First Circle, Antoni Tapies Foundation, Barcelona and Lines of Control, Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art, NY (2012).

Recipient of the prestigious 2014 Victor Martyn Lynch-Staunton Award for outstanding achievement as a Canadian mid-career visual artist, Hajra Waheed’s works can be found in a number of permanent collections including the Museum of Modern Art, New York; The British Museum, London; The Burger Collection, Zurich/Hong Kong and The Devi Art Foundation, New Delhi.
