The Karachi Art Directory is a research project of the Discursive Committee undertaken in collaboration with VM Art Gallery and art institutions like DHA Degree College for Women, Karachi School of Arts, Indus Valley School of Art & Architecture, Textile Institute of Pakistan and Department of Visual Studies, University of Karachi.
This extensive database extends to both contemporary and traditional art practices which for the first time have been documented on this scale in an Art Directory. It includes contemporary artists, art critics, calligraphers, digest artists and truck artists who have an active practice. Art education institutes and art galleries are also listed.
This seminal research aims to provide an understanding of the scale and diversity of art practices and maps the changing demographics of the art community.
