The news was shared by Y. L. Lucy Wang, Fellow Department of Architecture and Design at MOMA. Inviting Architect Yasmeen Lari to the opening of the exhibition on 15th February 2022, Ms. Wang said “we would be honored to have you join us for the event… and we would be delighted to celebrate this momentous occasion with you.”
The exhibition leaflet informs: “it is an exhibition that will explore the ways modern architecture in the region gave shape and expression to idealistic societal visions and emancipatory politics of the post-independence period. On view from February 20, 2022, through July 2, 2022, this exhibition will comprise over 200 works, including original sketches, drawings, photographs, films, audiovisual components, and architectural models, sourced primarily from prominent lenders and institutions in Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka.
The featured projects—by key figures such as Balkrishna V. Doshi (India), the only South Asian winner of the Pritzker Prize in Architecture; Minnette de Silva, the first woman to become a licensed architect in Sri Lanka; and Yasmeen Lari, the first woman to qualify as architect in Pakistan, to name a few—will address how architecture mediated the process of decolonization and modernization for these emerging nation-states.”
