FOMMA Trust (Foundation for Museum of Modern Art) in collaboration with The Consulate of Italy in Karachi and ArtCiti is pleased to announce “In WaterColour: An International Exhibition.”
Italy is country in which art and culture, in all their forms are highly regarded and the Consulate of Italy in Karachi is always supportive of all the cultural activities which can bring our peoples together.
This international exhibition on water-colour that we are displaying here in Karachi is on a journey which started in Rome and then Karachi onward to Jamshoro, then Portugal and finally Fabriano again in Italy.
The number of pieces of art and of the artists involved in this exhibition is really impressive and it shows that a technique like water-colour with its long tradition and history is very much contemporary in its ability to capture different moments of life.
This exhibition is important to preserve the memory of this great collective efforts and will also help more and more people to get closer to water-colour paintings in general.
This exhibition is open for general public to wander through the different images because very often journey takes places in our minds.
