Contemporary Pakistani art emerging – Asian Art News

Posted by artradar on June 9, 2008


PAKISTAN Contemporary Pakistani art is on the radar, writes Gina Fairley in Asian Art News. Urban Myths and Modern Fables at UTS Gallery, Sydney brings together the work of 11 artists of Indian and Pakistani heritage working in Germany, Canada, the United States and Australia and is part of a new focus on wider Islamic art in a post 9/11 society.

Interest in contemporary Pakistani art was sparked by the landmark exhibition “Pakistan: Another Vision” organised by London’s Asia House and Arts of the Islamic World in 2000. Inreasingly Pakistani artists are being included in biennales and in August 2007 the first State sponsored art institution in Pakistan, Islamabad’s National Gallery, was opened in August 1997.

Participating artists include Hamra Abbas, Khadim Ali, Henna Nadeem, Hitesh Natalwala, Tazeen Qayyum, Nusra Latif Qureshi, Sabeen Raja, Naeem Rana, Amin Rehman, Sangeeta Sandrasegar and Alia Toor.
