Art Gallery

Discover emerging American artist Rupy C. Tut's personal journey back to the real and imagined home of her childhood through which she explores ideas of displacement and identity.

The exhibition features recent paintings and drawings translating Sikh scripture, interpreting popular Punjabi stories and representing contemporary cross-cultural themes. Tut's work is particularly remarkable for her strict practice of past art forms and styles, using traditional materials and methods associated with calligraphy and Indian miniature paintings.

Lost Heritage: The Sikh Legacy in Pakistan

Art Gallery

The partition of British India in 1947 into two states - India and Pakistan - led to the forced migration of millions of people across the two countries. The Sikhs, settled in regions now designated as Pakistan, were compelled to leave their ancestral homes and their homeland. A vast number of historic sites - sacred and secular - were abandoned.

This unique exhibition of images by Amardeep Singh examines that lost legacy. The images trace a journey across a land that saw the birth of Sikhism; and which was its heartland for four centuries.
