Malik received her BFA from the National College of Arts, Lahore, in 2012, and her MFA from the Slade School of Fine Art, London, in 2015.

In 2017, Malik curated ‘Of Other Spaces,’ followed by ‘River in an ocean’, co- curated with artist-curator, Abdullah Qureshi, as a collateral event of the Lahore Biennale 2018. ‘Unmaking History’, a group exhibition co-curated with Saher Sohail and Laila Rahman, took place at the Research and Publication Centre in Lahore in 2019.

As an artist, Malik explores female identity and sexuality developed within the constraints of patriarchy. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally. Her first solo show titled, ‘a cage elusive as a shadow’ took place at Sanat Gallery, Karachi, in 2016. Her second solo show, ‘the soul breathes differently’, took place at Satrang Art Gallery in Islamabad in 2018.
