Musa Ghaznavi is a multidisciplinary artist from Lahore, Pakistan.
Rooted in an enduring preoccupation with the body, his practice draws from myriad experiences and takes a diversity of forms. His work challenges audiences to consider the embodied effects of migration and the constructed passage of time. At present he is concerned with employing newspapers as a preloaded material to consider the permeability of filtered media
Raised in Asia, Musa received his BA from Bennington College, Vermont. Currently he is a recipient of the New Artist Society Merit Scholarship at the School of the Art Institute Chicago where he is a candidate in the Masters of Design program.
