Catalogue published to accompany Rasheed Araeen’s solo exhibition titled ‘Going East, Again’ held at Rossi Rossi, Hong Kong from February to April in 2020.

‘In Going East, Again, Rasheed Araeen retraces his artistic journey over an impactful career of nearly seventy years. His contributions encompass a multifaceted artistic practice – initiated in Pakistan in the early 1950s and continued in London since 1964 – as well as important publishing and curatorial endeavours that established a platform for artists from post-colonial diasporas, both within and beyond institutions of the Western metropole. Araeen has cut across national borders and institutional barriers throughout this work, bringing recognition to an expansively transnational history of artistic modernism and initiating more egalitarian frameworks for contemporary practice.’ – excerpted from the article by Kylie Gilchrist
