More Than Just the Hijaab, Stories from women in Saudi
by Tasneem Alsultan

A photographic ethnography on Saudi women who have to face society in order to receive any recognition. Cultural stigma and social pressures are major obstacles standing in the way of their freedom and personal and professional fulfilment and independence. However, in a region that is always portrayed as sexist, many women have been more successful in empowering themselves, proving they can hold jobs that are higher than their male counterparts.

ARTIST TALK: EVASIVE TEMPORALITIES: OPENING THE PAST IN CONTEMPORARY INDIAN PHOTOGRAPHY by Christopher Pinney
“…in South Asia, though the future may not always look open, the past rarely looks closed” (Ashis Nandy). Nandy’s observation about the productivity of the past provides a frame to position several contemporary photographic practitioners who have performed representations through diverse idioms which have recently been termed “postdating”. Approaching work by Pushpamala N, Waswo X. Waswo, Olivier Culmann, Gauri Gill, Suresh Punjabi, Naresh Bhatia and Cop Shiva this talk explores deliberately belated copies and strategies of de-synchronization which split open the past, exploring an “evasive” doubled time, in order to complicate the future.




6 − 7 PM | Chyasal
SLIDESHOW: NEW WAVE IN NEPALI PHOTOGRAPHY
Curated by Kishor Sharma

Nepal has been traditionally portrayed with images of pristine mountains and historic durbar squares. These photographs, nonetheless important in the evolution of photography, gives a limited perspective of Nepal and its people. A new generation of photographers are now pushing boundaries of their medium to both counter and enrich these stereotypes. This slideshow gives a glimpse into the works of some of the contemporary photographers delving into personal stories and social justice issues that have been historically ignored or overlooked.
