Promises of a Parallel Cosmos presents key artworks from Pakistan born, Melbourne-based Nusra Latif Qureshi spanning 2011-2019, alongside a new commission developed in response to WAG’s collection of Colonial holdings. Reflecting upon established narratives within art historical depictions of people and society, Qureshi openly critiques their accuracy and uncovers unknown histories. In Promises of a Parallel Cosmos Qureshi eloquently acknowledges the complexity of colonial stories, and encourages a new dialogue for understanding these in the present day.

Nusra Latif Qureshi is one of the artists who have revisited and referenced the traditional art of South Asian miniature painting in their art practice. Her practice ranges from usually small and highly detailed paintings to large scale digital prints that engage with the visual histories of South Asian region and Australian culture, questioning the conventional interpretations. Qureshi has a Bachelor of Fine Arts from National College of Arts, Lahore, and a Master of Fine Arts from Victorian College of the Arts, University of Melbourne. Nusra is represented by Sutton Gallery, Melbourne.
