Karachi Biennale in the School

09 Oct 2017

 Ms.Varda Nisar and Ms Rukshaan Qazi gave a very thought provoking and interesting talk about art and how its role in society has evolved over the years. They used a PowerPoint to show works of arts from cave paintings to Picasso. They ended their talk with a picture of The Roof Garden Commission by Imran Qureshi at the Met in New York.  Ms. Nisar kept the children involved in a lively discussion, asking them to interpret works of art and to guess their purpose. There were no right answers just different perspectives. Children also filled out forms where they were given a space to express themselves with a drawing or some writing. The children were engaged and responsive throughout the presentation.
