‘Pastiche’ serves as treat of visual art
ISLAMABAD: ‘Pastiche’ – a group exhibition of innovative art by 11 emerging artists concluded on Monday at Pakistan National Council of the Arts (PNCA) after serving the art lovers as a two-month treat of visual art. Graduates of National College of Arts (NCA) were among the participants of the show that featured the exquisite skills of Sundas Rana, Narjis Mirza, Faten Suleman, Nazir Ahmas, Rabia Ayub, Amna Saeed, Summaiyah Arshad, Tazeem Anwar, Maimoona Riaz, Afshan Yousaf and Sundas Tariq.
According to the organisers, the exhibition encouraged dialogue between the audience and the creative thinkers through building a symbolic bridge and enabling the creation of an exciting interactive artwork.
These young creative thinkers are ready to encounter the challenges ahead in terms of creativity, art market, changing geo-political conditions and social needs. ‘Pastiche’ involved the work of fresh graduates and art practitioners of NCA, who have compiled together their inspiration, new ideas and vision of the post-modern Pakistan.
The displayed items highlighted the lack of basic utilities in daily life such as gas and electricity. The issues were captured through artwork produced by the talented painters, sculptors and new media artists. The event was organised in collaboration with the Ministry of National Heritage and Integration.
