Karachi School of Art has long provided pioneering education in art and design. However, it is also an institution struggling to keep up with the changing times and in its effort to modernise, KSA has transformed its gallery into a space which can be utilised by contemporary artists to create visual dialogues. Exhibitions will be held on a monthly basis, providing emerging artists with a platform to reach out to the public.
Being part of an educational institution, the gallery will contribute by familiarising students with the key issues emerging in contemporary Pakistani art and the new critical methods which artists are using to engage with contemporary issues. Lectures and seminars will be a regular feature, encouraging students to undertake an active consideration of artworks while resisting simplistic conclusions and binary thinking.
The KSA Gallery encourages new experimental art, and hopes to bring forth unique exhibitions. It provides a critical space for artists to exhibit, and for visitors to explore the art on display.
