A number of works from the AAN Collection were part of Rashid Rana’s mid-career retrospective, Labyrinth of Reflections at the Mohatta Palace Museum, Karachi.
Designed on the lines of a labyrinth, the exhibit is spread on the ground and first floor of the palace and offers an interesting mix of pop culture references and socio-political commentary. Simply put, it will entice you and it will shock you.
A graduate of the National College of Arts, with a master’s degree from the Massachusetts College of Arts in Boston, Rana is currently heading the fine arts department at the Beaconhouse National University. A detailed note issued by the gallery for describing his work read: “His work poses questions about urban existence, identity, paradoxical truths and traces the changing facets and effects of globalization and also provides a gripping reminder that the images and stimulations that surround us in modern urban culture are deceptively different than what they may seem.” – Source : The Dawn
