Unfinished: “New Prints 2022/winter”, January 20–March 26, 2022, New York

Honored to be a part of “Unfinished: New Prints 2022/winter” at International Print Center New York @ipcny . Thank you @queerarchivework Queer.Archive.Work (QAW) for believing in my work and awareness in representing marginalized communities.

#repost IPCNY is very excited to be bringing Queer.Archive.Work (QAW)’s perspective as the jury of the 65th iteration of New Prints with the theme unfinished. This was conceived of by QAW and announced alongside the open call, soliciting works that stepped away from traditions of polish and perfection and instead expressed incompleteness, illegibility, risk, and queerness, among other themes.

About the Jury : Queer.Archive.Work, Inc. (QAW) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) reading room, publishing studio, and community space serving Providence, RI and beyond. QAW was incorporated in the State of Rhode Island on March 2, 2020 to support artists and writers with free, open access to space and resources for experimental publishing, with a special focus on queer practices. QAW includes a non-circulating library of books, zines, tools, objects, and downloadable files, a risograph printer, shared studio space (with Binch Press), and digital meeting spaces. Programming includes studio residencies, open studios, workshops, publishing, and online queer hangouts. QAW strives to be accountable, to center marginalized voices through intersectional work, and to cultivate anti-racist, safe platforms for independent, queer publishing.

YOUR OWN STORY, DESIGN TORONTO, JAN 21–JAN 30 2022

‘Your Own Story’ is an exhibition ( https://designto.org/event/your-own-story/ ) by Imran Jatoi about queer identities.

The intent of ‘Your Own Story’ is to encourage understanding of queer and marginalized individuals. Focus is placed on how every piece is created by sense of design and articulation of imagery. The resulting works deal with the sense of accepting identity in a metaphor of branding personal image. The symbolic representation is created by taking references of objects in such a way, in which observers can engage themselves and relish the intimate fluidity.

My short film PINK WATER has been accepted into the Cinema of Nations Film Festival, in Berlin!

Hey everyone! Pink Water was a short film made in quarantine, over the development of several weeks. This was the first short film I’ve produced and directed with such a freestyle structure. I’m certainly eager to get back to a more organized approach for my next film, yet making Pink Water was a fantastic exercise in artistic freedoms, accepting change, and at last turn down all the psychological weight we had paving the way to creation.

The CINEMA OF NATIONS is organized by THE WORLD CINEMA ALLIANCE e.V

In the event that you’ve not been straightforward with what your identity is, your work won’t convey the effect that it needs to create any degree of reaction in your viewers You need to make things that you are actually intrigued by, or the whole undertaking is probably going to be unsuitable to everyone interested. In case you are making art that you actually consider to be new, notable, and energizing, you are assured to be more joyful making it, and that inventive sparkle of bliss is something that will sparkle all through your work.

Above work of art gives a glimpse into the intensely emotional scene of a queer imagination.

Description of work:  Being pleased with yourself can offer significance to what you do and how you carry on with your life, which is the reason it’s so critical to commend yourself at whatever point you’ve accomplished something, regardless of how enormous or little it is.

Description of work:  Feeling glad for yourself will just inspire you to push ahead with your present moment and long-term objectives, in this manner expanding your sensation of happiness.

Description of work:  Maybe you do have far to go, perhaps you’ve recently started — yet that doesn’t mean you can’t as of now feel pleased with yourself.

Description of work: Investing pride in oneself doesn’t really liken to being egoistic. It doesn’t imply that we are looking down on others to feel like we’re on the highest point of the world.

Rules for fools / Draw what you hide / Series

Identity is simply the manner in which we see and express ourselves. Dynamics and circumstances that an individual is born into the world with like gender, ethnic legacy, sex, or one’s body, regularly assume a part in characterizing one’s identity. However numerous parts of an individual’s persona change all through their life. Individuals’ encounters can adjust how they see themselves or are seen by others. Alternately, their identities likewise impact the choices they make: Individuals pick their companions, embrace certain styles, and adjust themselves to political convictions dependent on their identities.
