Center for South Asian Studies presents: Nilima Sheikh "Each Night Put Kashmir in Your Dreams"
UMMA is delighted to welcome artist Nilima Sheikh in conjunction with the LSA Theme Semester "India in the World." Sheikh (b. 1945, New Delhi, India) studied history at the Delhi University as an undergraduate and painting at the Faculty of Fine Arts, Baroda for her Master's degree. She uses traditional painting methods to create images of an often tragic and ruthless reality. Sheikh will discuss her works around Kashmir, which are on exhibit at the Art Institute Chicago from March 8-May 18, 2014. The title of her March 14 talk, "Each Night Put Kashmir in Your Dreams," is a quote from the work of Kashmiri poet, Agha Shahid Ali (1949-2001).
