Syed Mujtaba Rizvi

Cultures of Resistance Awardee — Kashmir
Syed Mujtaba Rizvi is an artist from Srinagar, Kashmir. Painting is central to his practice, but his work spans installations, drawing, video, and digital media. Through his art, he seeks to investigate how mainstream narratives, personal memories, and social behavior are shaped by contemporary politics around geography, religion, culture, and identity, as well as by the universal preoccupation with death. Rizvi also founded Kashmir Art Quest, a contemporary arts organization that creates international artist projects and partnerships for artists in Kashmir. 
Rizvi received a Cultures of Resistance Award (CoR Award) and is using the award to support his Redundant Conversations series, which uses ink, watercolor, charcoal, and acrylics.
