Contemporary Pakistani art comes to London

From October 29-December 8, Londoners will get to see a 'different face' of Pakistan than the negative portrayal that dominates the international media. To benefit CARE Pakistan, London's Asia House is hosting "Different Faces of Pakistan", an exhibition curated by Sasheen Abbasi that showcases the variety of contemporary Pakistani art, from landscapes and figurative works to Abstraction, Cubism, and graphic calligraphy. Works by Sadequain, Khusro Subzwari, Farrukh Shahab, Inam Raja, Dr Wasif Ali, and Tassaduq Sohail offer glimpses into Pakistani culture, society, and the evolution of its art scene. Abbasi has selected works that demonstrate the “creativity, courage and conviction of artists living through some of the most trying times the nation has witnessed over the past few decades”. As such, the show captures the real face of Pakistan. – Text by Huma Yusuf
