Mo Shah: Transmission Eternal at the Drawing Room Lahore

About Mo Shah: (taken from his website) http://www.moshah.com
Dystopian pop-romanticism cloaked behind a veil of subversive post-modern expressionism, Mo Shah’s artwork navigates themes of cross-cultural tension and isolation through an apocalyptic neo-noir lens.

A mixed-media artist, Shah often infuses his photography with decaying pop-cultural/historical imagery and dark symbolism. A fascination with alternative cinema, lost history, existential literature, power structures, cosmic constructions, fringe societies, music, iconography and the occult pervades his work. Shah’s compositions consolidate any number of his interests into a narrative that seeks beauty in despair.

A graduate of New York University, Mo Shah was a founding editor of New York City-based EGO Magazine, and has held several alternative DJ residencies in lower Manhattan. An emerging artist, Shah’s works have been selected for group exhibitions at New York’s A.I.R. Gallery, Abrons Art Center (Henry Street Settlement), and Diva. Originally from Lahore (Pakistan), he currently resides in New York City and Hong Kong.

Mo Shah showed at the Drawing Room in Lahore yesterday and his art will be displayed till Sat afternoon. Be sure to visit!
Here’s a few shots from the opening.

Secret Socrates: Avantika Sujan talks philosophy of taste

Recently Avantika Sujan, corporate lawyer and entrepreneur, travelled from Delhi to Lahore to talk at the NCA on the philosophy of taste. It was a very engaging talk as the discussion centred around what determines whether something is worthy of classification as beautiful, and who or what chooses whether something is in good or bad taste.

She went through Plato, Kant and Hume in doing so made reference to postimpressionism and Cezanne’s first exhibition in Paris.

As the talk concluded it seems that the beauty is in the thought process of assessing beauty. Here are some photos from the talk.
