Foundation Art Divvy
Foundation Art Divvy was established in 2016 as a platform to present and showcase contemporary art from Pakistan, both within the country and internationally. It is committed to organizing and supporting public art projects in Pakistan and focussing on arts education in order to foster a greater appreciation and understanding of contemporary art.
ln April 2017, Foundation Art Divvy curated and organized Two Wings To Fly, Not One, the first museum exhibition in Pakistan of leading contemporary artists lmran Qureshi and Aisha Khalid, which was held to much acclaim at the National Art Gallery, PNCA, lslamabad. In March 2018, the Foundation mounted I, too, am a part of this history at The Fakir Khana Museum (FKM), Lahore, as a collateral event to the Lahore Biennale 01. This was the first time the historic FKM opened its doors to contemporary art, with the artists working with the historic and site-specific nature of the museum space.
