163 Plymouth Street
March 6 – April 5 2012
Closing reception: April 5, 6-9pm
Please join us for the reception of Transparent Studio with Ruby Chishti. During the last month the artist has used the gallery space as her own studio realizing larger installations and working on several projects simultaneously. Using various materials such as recycled fabric, exhibition postcards, and found objects, Ruby questions the function of clothing beyond social status or sexual differences. At the same time she will also be negotiating private and public studio art practice as will be evident on Thursday evening when you will be able to view the work and meet the artist.
Ruby Chishti’s sculpture based art practice has spanned over twelve years. She graduated from the National College of Arts in Lahore, Pakistan and was recently awarded the Faiz Art Prize by Nukta Art Magazine in Karachi, Pakistan. Her work has been exhibited in numerous national and international galleries and venues including Walsh Gallery, Chicago, Center of Contemporary Art, Sacramento, Aicon Gallery, London, Rohtas II, Lahore, Vadehra Gallery, New Delhi and Harris Museum, Preston. Chishti’s lyrical sculptures and installations touch on universal themes of identity, love, loss, of being human and social isolation as well as questioning the role of authority and gender politics. Her work has garnered huge critical acclaim and public attention. Ruby Chishti was born and raised in Pakistan. The artist lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
