While one dodges women who want to give their work a ‘makeover’, the other suppresses disappointment at yet another gallery rejecting a proposal for a show. Yet they manage to make more work, display it, squeeze in awards and residencies, and sometimes make a quick buck. Things I can never manage to get done!


MEANWHILE, I sat down to talk to artist Risham Syed for a discussion on what goes on behind the scenes of art exhibitions and big curated projects. I wish it were an actual sit down, but it was not, and instead we chatted on Skype instead – kind of necessary with thousands of miles between us.

Go ahead, read: ArtNow – Contemporary Art of Pakistan – Artist of the Month: Risham Syed even if the black background blinds you after a while.
