How to Cut an Artillery Pantalloons

This small exhibition displays remarkable new acquisitions by USC Pacific Asia Museum. Work by three influential contemporary Pakistani artists—Imran Qureshi, Ali Kazim and Muhammad Zeeshan—have recently been acquired by the museum thanks to generous funding from the museum’s Collectors’ Circle, Pasadena Art Alliance, and the Pakistan Art Council. Providing an interesting and valuable point of connection between the tradition of miniature paintings and contemporary practices, these works add great depth and historic continuity to our collection.
