PU girls artwork showcase
Lahore: The Alhamra Art Gallery was host to the work of 19 female artists from
the Punjab University College of Art and Design on Friday. 'Incognito – unwrap
yourself', as the display was dubbed, showcased the final theses of MA
Exploring various social, cultural and even
psychological themes, the artists had depicted their interpretation of subjects
and emotions such as 'Sufferings', 'Black Magic', 'Present and Future of
Pakistan' and 'Sufism' among others. Students' research and ideas shone through
in the work, which were set apart by the variety of technique on display.
Although subjects overlapped and were neither novel nor unique, most subjects
were easy to relate to. From escapism to innocence, spirituality to childhood,
class divisions in society and prostitution, the thesis display was a melting
pot of ideas and emotions and everyday situations.
PU Vice Chancellor Dr
Mujahid Kamran, who inaugurated exhibit, said the university's Art and Design
department had been neglected and many batches had graduated without receiving
any encouragement for their work. The VC said all art societies, cultural
complexes and art councils had developed under liberal democratic governments,
such as that of Zulfikar Ali Bhutto.
Art and Design Principal Rahat Masood reflected on how security concerns had
reduced the scope of art and culture in our society and students' talent was a
proof that they were sensitive, creative and responsive. "Students – through
different exercises – are exposed to diverse ideas and concepts because many
students find it hard to escape the close-mindedness inculcated in them by a
conservative society," she said.
Kahkashan Javed, Head of Painting department,
praised the students' efforts and said the students had worked hard to make
their portfolios a success. "We promised them if their thesis paintings were
impressive, we would hold an exhibition. I am glad they have proven themselves,"
she said smiling.
