The exhibition consists of unique and diverse narratives and experiences of the artists which have been skillfully curated at this celebratory exhibition. “The Sindh Chapter” portrays exciting and contemporary artworks followed by traditional techniques. The theme of the exhibition is broad, flexible and gentle which need not be restricted to the diversity of artistic expression and a conjunction of abstraction and realism. This particular exhibition pushes traditional boundaries in its treatment of material or subject. The artists have highlighted the given concept through creative expressions, by building a dialogue between the artwork and the viewer to make the audience ponder upon the concept of being, its meaning and the process of transformation of life.
