Bullets to Butterflies at Gallery 1265

Unaiza Karim, Fading, 2012.

Bullets to Butterflies explores the story of Malala Yousafzai, a fearless and resilient 15-year-old education activist in Pakistan who survived a targeted shooting by extremists in October 2012. Through their work – drawings, prints, papercuts and installation – Canadian artists Huma Durrani, Unaiza Karim and Saba Syed convey their horror and their hope for change. Combining traditional and contemporary art forms, the artists address issues of literacy and gender equality, and express the need to speak out against senseless violence.

This exhibition is presented by the Doris McCarthy Gallery and generously supported by the Toronto Arts Council.
