Present Elsewhere | Rashid Rana

Asia Art Archive

The Pakistan-based artist inquiries into the possibilities of fiction to construct multiple pasts through notes, images, and schematic representations of his collaborative work-in-progress.

15 Invitations for 15 Years
A special programme series featuring exhibitions, projects, written works, performances, a blog, and set of e-dossiers marking Asia Art Archive's 15-year anniversary.
Present Elsewhere
Present Elsewhere is a long-term collaborative project by Lahore-based artist Rashid Rana that seeks to examine the limitations of occupying a present that is assumed to be singular by imagining the intersection of history and fiction. The first manifestation of the project takes place as part of Asia Art Archive's 15 Invitations programme series in the form of a download-and-printable e-dossier.
