Nine artists embark on ‘Voyages of Personal Discovery’ at IVS Gallery


KARACHI – The Indus Valley School of Art and Architecture recently held an exhibition of artworks by nine artists, titled ‘Voyages of Personal Discovery’, at the Indus Valley School Gallery. The nine artists embarked on their individual voyages of personal discovery. The exhibition displayed works in mixed media by Anam Khan, Fahim Rao, Hina Farooqui, Madiha Hyder, Nadia Niazy, Noorus Sabah Saeed, Sara Mahmood, Ussman Ghauri and Zuna Altaf. The Indus Valley School of Art and Architecture was founded in 1989 by a group of professional architects, designers and artists who believed that Karachi was in critical need of a school of excellence encompassing the disciplines of Fine Arts, Design and Architecture.
The school is registered as a not-for-profit, non-commercial institution and is managed by an executive committee through the executive director under the control of an independent board of governors that includes distinguished educationists, artists, architects, industrialists, bankers and media persons in addition to three members nominated by the Sindh government, whereas the Sindh governor is the patron of the school.
The school was granted an independent charter by the provincial government in June 1994, thereby empowering it to award its own degrees. It was the fourth private institution of higher learning in Pakistan to be given degree-awarding status. Admission to the school is strictly based on merit as determined by an aptitude test, an interview process and a weighting criterion.
