April 4 – April 16, 2011, Vancouver BC.

Since arriving in Canada from east Africa and beyond in the early 1970s, the Ismaili community has managed to preserve its heritage and make a wide range of valued contributions to their adopted home. To help celebrate the City of Vancouver’s 125th anniversary, the Pendulum Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of contemporary Ismaili Muslim Artists highlighting the artistic achievements of one of the city’s most vibrant communities. Curated by Yasmin P. Karim, the show features 10 living artists in British Columbia to a wider public. Concepts of faith, spirituality, pluralism and modern identity are explored by these artists as they strive to merge a contemporary sensibility with ideas and images with deep historical roots.
