The first Karachi Art Festival 2018 is being organized by Nigaah Art Magazine that recently hosted a successful Art Awards programme which is now an annual event.
Overall, art has become more accessible in Pakistan, however interacting with paintings, installations or sculptures and more importantly seeing them up close, often provides a deeper appreciation that could never be put into words.
Karachi Art Festival (KAF) is fashioned and designed to promote art and take it into public domain by creating accessible platforms for art interactivity.
The two-day event on 7th and 8th April, 2018 held at Beach Luxury Hotel Karachi will encompass art display of renowned artists from Pakistan, Sri Lanka and UAE, art discourse with live Q&A sessions, live art performances, book launches and interviews to enlighten the public.
Art critics, historians, collectors, curators and artists will join the panel to discuss and share their opinions on various topics.
We understand that participation from galleries is integral to the success of the programme. As such, we encourage and support artists and organisations to come forward and be a part of this amazing opportunity to display art at Karachi Art Festival. Not only we anticipate a large footfall of general public but also art connoisseurs, artists, critics and curators to enlighten the programme.
