Arshad Hakim

Arshad Hakim works around the idea of dislodged subjectivities, how they are formed and operate. He does so by often using pre-existing material and repurposes it to highlight shifts in reading/viewing that incorporate various senses of embodiment.

Arshad Hakim (b. 1992) attained his BFA from Faculty of Fine Arts, MSU (2014) and MFA from the Shiv Nadar University (2016). He was a fellow at Ashkal Alwan—The Lebanese Association of Plastic Arts (2017-18). He works primarily with photographs, text-based pieces and video, and his interest lies in non-linear and non-narrative cinema.

Hakim’s exhibitions include, “Critical Constellations” held by the Foundation of Indian Contemporary Art, New Delhi, ‘As We become’ curated by Meenakshi Thirukode, New Delhi, Open Studios at Ashkal Alwan, Beirut, “Watermelon, Fish and Half Ghost” Swiss Cottage Gallery, London. He has been a resident at #1 Shanti Road, Bangalore and was invited to a summer school at ZhDK in Zurich, co-organized by Manifesta 11. He has been published by the Arts of the Working Class, Berlin.
