Zarina Hashmi : Who is Zarina Hashmi?Why is Google Celebrating?

Google is celebrating the 86th birth anniversary of Indian American artist and printmaker Zarina Hashmi.

 She was also one of the most prominent artists associated with the Minimalist Movement.

On this day in 1937, Hashmi was born in the little Indian town of Aligarh.

Millions of people were forced to evacuate due to this awful occurrence, and Zarina's family was compelled to go to Karachi in the newly founded Pakistan.

In 1977, Hashmi relocated to New York City, where she developed into a fervent supporter of black and female artists.

Zarina was one of four artists or artistic collectives who represented India in its debut exhibit at the 2011 Venice Biennale.

The exhibition, Zarina: Paper Like Skin, moved to the Art Institute of Chicago and the Solomon R. 

Zarina served as the Asian/Pacific/American Institute's Artist-in-Residence at NYU during the 2017–18 academic year.
