KB17 is Pakistan's largest international contemporary art event that will take place every two years in Karachi. This October, over 140 artists from Pakistan and across the globe will respond to a common theme: WITNESS.
Chief curator Amin Gulgee has conceptualized KB17 exhibitions with performances, screenings, and dialogue for charting new movement through familiar spaces. KB17's two-week long, free public exhibition at 12 venues, is an occasion to participate in an aesthetic, intellectual, and emotional survey of the city. Our collective witnessing will disrupt the limits of our spatial imagination. KB17 is an occasion to revisit our histories, rethink our present, and reimagine our future with greater optimism.
