Contemporary Pakistani Arts Exhibit in NY

A cohesive and nuanced look into the current Pakistani art scene which is beginning to garner wider international recognition will be provided at the Thomas Erben Gallery,
526 W 26th Street, Floor 4, New York, NY 10001, from June 28 - July 27, 2007.
Composed of both emerging, established and historical artists working in a full spectrum of media and intents, this exhibition makes legible the interconnectedness of the visual arts to the 'real world'.
This fact often eludes viewers when presented with domestic material, but is here made manifest in each piece shown by particularizing it to the often misunderstood and misrepresented nature of the contemporary political and cultural climate of Pakistan.
This collection of work shows a disregard for certain Western temperaments, most notably the prevalent influence of popular culture's intent to garner attention through overt subject matter. Rather, this grouping conveys highly charged material in a poetic, complex and thought-provoking manner, refusing to offer viewers a complacent or cursory experience.
