This Weekend in Karachi: Gallery Hopping
This weekend in Karachi is playing out like an homage to contemporary art within the city it seems. There are several exhibitions by artists known and new, and we’ve picked our favorites. Here they are in no particular order:
The Other Side
The exhibition revolves around psychological and social ideology. Simplicity, realism and human activities tie it together. The trompe-l’oel technique has been employed to create three-dimensional illusions. The artist Saba Tanveer hopes to encourage dialogue by exploring a unique perspective on the everyday mundane, be it objects or activities. See it to believe it.
P.S. The event is open to all, but don’t forget to donate to T2F
Symphony of the Sea
ArtKaam Gallery’s exclusive exhibition showcases fresh graduates; Ainee, Aliza Karim, Anas Abbas, Ayaz Hussain, Ehsan Usman, Haniya Athar, Ramsha Bin Nesar, Sana Khalil, Sana Mirza, Syeda Fizza Fatima, and Waseem Akram. Also featuring a musical performance of Shah Abdul Latif Bhittai’s “Sur Samoondi”.
P.S. The event is open to all
New, News, Newest
Ijaz ul Hassan is the recipient of the highest civilian award in the field of art, having exhibited extensively across the globe. This exhibition focuses on pictorial references to social and political issues of our time. In order to vividly enhance the substance of images and forms, they are often simplified; the colors spread out and flattened in a unique manner.
P.S. The show is open till the 1st of May
This exhibition showcases cultural exchange in a way. Art from different countries speaks of the unique experience of life there. Humans ride similar boats but in different oceans, with their own serenity and storms. The participating artists come from Italy, France, Turkey, and The Netherlands.
P.S. Also featuring Pakistani artists.
