Waqas Khan in IMMA, Dublin

Now until 17.03.2025

Waqas Khan is participating with three large scale works in a group exhibition at the Irish Museum of Modern Art in Dublin, titled Take a Breath. The exhibition is open from June 14 2024 until March 17 2025.

Take a Breath is a major new exhibition that provides an historical, social, political, and personal examination of breathing – why we breathe, how we breathe and what we breathe – exploring themes of decolonisation, environmental racism, indigenous language, the Impact of war on the environment and breath as meditation.

Taking as its starting point the nature of breath and its vital role in our very existence, the exhibition reflects on the social, political, environmental, and spiritual aspect of breathing, tracking this vital act from the impact of post-industrial air pollution to modern-day wars and the effect on environment, health and how we live; to the suppression of protests of voices from different communities, where breath is a symbol of community and resistance; and the use of breath as personal meditation.
