Exhibitions Conch Curve Creation works at National College of Arts

 A THREE-day-long exhibition “Conch Curve Creation” of collective works by the recent graduates of National College of Arts will open at the Drawing Room Art Gallery near Qaddafi Stadium on December 14 at 5.30pm.

It is a collaborative effort of recent graduates of the NCA. According to the participating students/artists Dua Abbas, Wardha Shabbir and Ali Asad Naqvi;

“Multiple hands working on a single piece of artistic creation is an age-old tradition and has been manifested in different forms in different regions of the world.

If the 15th century Ottoman Empire had its Nakkashane, or studios where different artists worked on a single miniature painting, Medieval Europe had its weaving industries where members of a weaver’s household would work on different areas of the same tapestry. More recent times saw less rehearsed kinds of collaboration, such as the Surrealists’ game of Exquisite Corpse which involved a single sheet of paper passed from artist to artist.

Each contributed an impromptu image which led to a strange amalgam at the end.” Meanwhile, the first solo paintings exhibition of Shireen Ikramullah Khan ‘Blue, Orange and in Between’ was opened at the Alhamra Art Gallery, The Mall, on Monday afternoon.

Keeping this rich tradition of collaborative work in mind, we have attempted, in the series of drawings displayed, a creative collaboration of our own. The pieces you will see bear impressions of more than one set of hands, and more than one strain of thought. Contributing individually to a single work, yet trying to maintain a kind of anonymity at the same time, to better facilitate the blending of three minds, we found the process refreshing.
