Sitara Abuzar Ghaznawi - Sin City

Thu-Sun: 12-5pm

Auto Italia presents Sin City, the first UK solo exhibition by Sitara Abuzar Ghaznawi. The exhibition will present a body of newly commissioned site-specific sculptures and drawings that continue Ghaznawi’s investigations into the classist and racialised structures of Western taste and aesthetics.

Using salvaged, commonly available materials often considered lowbrow in the context of Western aesthetics, this series of material assemblages seeks to challenge dominant codes of institutional display and accepted ideas of craft and taste.

Sin City is commissioned and produced by Auto Italia, with support from Pro Helvetia and Swiss Culture Fund UK. Auto Italia’s commissions are made possible by our Exhibition Circle and Member supporters.
