Group Show in collab with Canvas Gallery, Karachi - Patterns of the Past: Weaving Heritage in ‘Pakistani’ Art’

The exhibition brings together five contemporary ‘Pakistani’ artists; each of whom use textiles to unravel conventional notions of art, heritage,nation and identity. While these artists have been defined as ‘Pakistani’, none of them are easy fits for the term. This show – and the especially ‘tailored’works within it – aims to dismantle inter/national stereotypes about ‘Pakistani art’.

‘Patterns of the Past: Weaving Heritage in ‘Pakistani’ Art’, curated by Dr Zehra Jumabhoy. The artists include: Ruby Chishti, Adeela Suleman, Liaqat Rasul, David Alesworth and Bushra Waqas Khan. The exhibition will be held in collaboration with Canvas Gallery, Karachi.
