Aicon Gallery in New York is delighted to be exhibiting the work of a new wave of twelve contemporary Pakistani artists. Méré Humdum, translating roughly to ‘My Lover’, takes as its starting point the ‘longing for the ordinary’ that many Pakistanis feel amidst the violence, political turmoil and social upheaval that have become part of their contemporary reality. The exhibition explores how a new generation of artists has embraced progressive modes of post-colonial art practice to offer new interpretations and pose new questions in direct response to the chaos around them, and how extraordinary possibilities are born of extraordinary circumstances.
