Art Gallery opening reception for Amin Rehman's Other Histories! (with Tariq Ali)

Amin Rehman - Other Histories08.jpg

Artist talk: Saturday January 13th 3 pm.

Since moving to Canada from Pakistan in 1990, Amin Rehman has consistently delved into socio-political themes in his work. Rehman reflects, “It’s always a challenge to exhibit politically charged work.

"My position is one that involves negotiating but not compromising, so that, as an artist, I don’t play to the tune of hegemony.”

Rehman’s uncompromised and indeed provocative works push for a re-examination of both historic and contemporary texts that, despite being conveyed through simple English phrases and word pairings, question the power dynamics within situations of political unrest.
