KARACHI: Yet another exhibition which seems to be a completely out of the box concept opens at The Chawkandi Art Gallery which is one of the most prestigious and the oldest of all the galleries of Karachi, titled “An Apology to Shaikh Ayaz “on Tuesday, 23rdof July 2019.
This is not the first time the two curators, Mariam Mushtaq Kazi and Jamal Ashiqain have come up with an exceptional concept for an art exhibition. Their last Curatorial event “ Its all about satire” was also unusually exceptional show.
This time the two have taken a totally contemporary take on a regional poet, putting together few of the very best artists of the country, and one from Iran too who have produced work on a subject which has always been limited to a certain region.
They say it’s an effort to highlight the importance of regional literature and celebrate the poets and bridge the gap between all the forms of expression specially literature and visual arts. BIZ TODAY REPORT
