Let's Not Talk About Politics
31 May,2012


Pakistan is a country rife with conversation. It is both the warp and the weft of the fabric of this particular society, and therefore passionate discourse about politics is inevitable. It permeates our consciousness from television talk shows to heated discussions in sitting rooms, offices or over a cup of tea or coffee. Pakistani contemporary art celebrates this conversation and there is much discourse and a great deal of imagery related to the subject in art being created. Though we are passionate about our politics, this show aims to be apolitical. The works exhibited in this show, are those that arose from the social consciousness, the subconscious and deeply personal narratives of the featured artists. Of course if one really tries hard then one might discover something political in each of these works but we would urge you “Let's Not Talk About Politics".
