HAMRA ABBAS

Hamra Abbas was born in Kuwait in 1976 and lives and works between Boston and Islamabad. Abbas has a versatile practice that straddles a wide range of media. Drawing upon culturally loaded imagery and iconography, in an often playful manner, Abbas appropriates and transforms traditional motifs and styles to examine questions of conflict within society. She is an artist of nomadic temperament, which lends her practice an anthropological dimension and her themes range from the poetic to the political to the absurd. Hamra Abbas is the 2011 winner of the Abraaj Capital Art Prize, she was awarded a Jury prize at the Sharjah Biennial 9. Her work has been included in 2nd Kochi-Muziris Biennale (2014), Asian Art Biennial, Taiwan (2011); the International Artist’s Workshop of Thessaloniki Biennial and International Incheon Women Artists Biennale (2009); Guangzou Triennial (2008); Istanbul Biennial (2007); the Biennale of Sydney (2006); and the Cetinje Biennial (2004). Abbas’ work has been exhibited at Singapore Art Museum; Royal Ontario Museum, Toronto; V&A Museum, London; Asia Society Museum, New York; ARTIUM de Álava, Vitoria-Gasteiz, Spain; Manchester Art Gallery, UK; REDCAT, LA. Abbas received BFA and MA in Visual Arts at the National College of Arts, Lahore and Meisterschueler from Universitaet der Kuenste, Berlin in 2004.
