Working with drawings, sculpture, and photographs, Seher Shah’s (AIR ’10) recent work investigates idealized modernist projects by breaking down their components. Using the basic elements of architecture such as the wall, grid, and column, Shah examines the qualities of Brutalist architecture within the landscape. Born in Karachi, Pakistan, the artist has had exhibitions at Nature Morte, Berlin; Scaramouche, New York; Nature Morte, New Delhi; Rubin Museum of Art, New York; Green Art Gallery, Dubai; Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art, New York; and Haus der Kulteren der Welt, Berlin. Her work is in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Brooklyn Museum; the Queens Museum of Art; and the Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary Foundation, Vienna, Austria (TBA21), among others. Shah received her Bachelor of Architecture and BFA degrees from Rhode Island School of Design in 1988. She lives and works in Brooklyn.
