Hashiya : The Margin

Anant Art Gallery presents HASHIYA: THE MARGIN a major exhibition exploring for the first time the tradition of illustrated margins in miniatures through contemporary art.

The exhibition brings together the artworks of the following ten distinguished artists:

  • Manisha Gera Baswani
  • Alexander Gorlizki
  • Desmond Lazaro
  • Ghulam Mohammad
  • Nusra Latif Qureshi
  • V Ramesh
  • Gulammohammed Sheikh
  • Nilima Sheikh
  • Yasir Waqas
  • Saira Wasim

Through their work, the artists are responding to the concept of ‘hashiya’ or ‘the margin’, an Idea, that originally arose from the muraqqa of the 16th century. It is a space of adornment, in which the artist embellishes the edges of the page to pay homage to the things that lie at the centre.
