This autumn, visit the first UK exhibition by Pakistan-born, US-based artist Mahwish Chishty.  Chishty’s work combines silhouettes of military drones with decorative Pakistani folk art patterns to highlight the way in which the presence of foreign drones over Pakistan has become a feature of the physical, psychological and cultural environment of the country.
