Yet another home for Pakistani art from both emerging and established artists is found at Gandhara-Art Gallery
. This is Karachi’s only exhibition space with a regular programme run by Gandhara-Art, a curatorial organisation that has its offices in Hong Kong
. The organisation is very active internationally, curating shows of Pakistani artists in several venues across the globe. In the past, they have collaborated with many institutions of other countries, most notably the Hong Kong Arts Center, the Salsali Private Museum in Dubai and, more recently, the Modern Art Museum in Arnhem, Netherlands. Among the many artists whose work it represents, Imran Qureshi
, selected as 2013 Artist of the Year by Deutsche Bank, is worthy of mention for his lush, richly detailed miniatures, which he started staining with bloody red paint in recent years, in response to the increasing violence in Pakistan.
