Pace Gallery is privileged to present new paintings by Raqib Shaw. The exhibition showcases Shaw’s first work in the long tradition of landscape painting, signifying a new direction for the London-based Kashmiri artist.
Drawing inspiration from his childhood memories of Kashmir and the nature and architecture of the Indian subcontinent, Shaw has mined and re-envisioned his own personal history through the compulsively-detailed, meticulously-painted, and emotionally-potent works. Raqib Shaw: Landscapes of Kashmir will be on view at 537 West 24th Street from April 5 – May 18, 2019, with an opening reception on Thursday, April 4 from 6 – 8 PM.
A full-color catalogue featuring a conversation between the artist and Pace Gallery Founder Arne Glimcher will accompany the exhibition.
