Nusra Latif Qureshi’s digital photomontage DID YOU COME HERE TO FIND HISTORY? is included in the group exhibition Beyond the Page: South Asian Miniature Painting and Britain, 1600 to Now at the MK Gallery in Milton Keynes, UK. This monumental show explores how the traditions of South Asian miniature painting have been reclaimed and reinvented by modern and contemporary artists, taken forward beyond the pages of illuminated manuscripts to experimental forms that include installations, sculpture, and film.
Featuring work by artists from different generations working in dialogue with the miniature tradition, the exhibition presents contemporary works alongside examples of miniature painting dating as far back as the mid-16th century, many of which have been drawn from major collections including the Victoria & Albert Museum and the British Museum. This landmark exhibition showcases South Asian miniature painting to spark novel and meaningful connections across epochs through a rich array of multidisciplinary works.
