London Virtual Edition: Shemza Digital

The Other Art Fair Virtual Editions launches its first London edition this 6–11 July 2021. We’re thrilled to introduce, a participatory digital art project by Aphra Shemza and Stuart Batchelor based on the work of Aphra Shemza’s grandfather, the well known British/Pakistani painter Anwar Jalal Shemza. Read on to find out more.

Seeking to highlight the importance of migrant voices within British art history as a means to decolonise the artworld, Shemza and Batchelor invite the public to create their own digital artworks in the style of Anwar Shemza creating a space for contemplation and artistic activity that is free and accessible to all.
