KB17 is a visionary platform that brings together innovation, excellence and criticality through a multiplicity of curatorial strategies. We showcase artists from Pakistan to the world and strengthen a global art exchange. KB17 is part of the global network of the International Biennale Foundation and has a strong partnership with Goethe Institut, British Council and Alliance Francaise. Our network extends to universities and cultural institutions in the country and abroad.
