Gallery Tour with Dr. Saleema Waraich

Saleema Waraich will take a group of Westphal College students to Twelve Gates Arts in Old City, the only gallery in Philadelphia devoted to South Asian art. Aisha Khan, the director of Twelve Gates, has agreed to open the gallery to Westphal students, led in conversation by Prof. Waraich, to see the works on site by a diverse range of South Asian artists in Philadelphia and New York. This visit will introduce students not only to a vibrant, cutting-edge art space, but also to the gallery’s extended network of artists (who work in a variety of materials and media) with whom the students might be able to develop coops and post-graduate work opportunities. Meet at Twelve Gates by 11 am (106 N 2nd St, Philadelphia). Free lunch afterwards with the scholar and group.
