Shahid Rassam and Kolkata Museum: The Conflict

Shahid Rassam, one of most famous Pakistani artists is upset a Kolkata museum, which had agreed to exhibit his works on Ghalib’s poetry done in collaboration with Indian poet Gulzar, cancelled the event at the last minute. The museum claims they were misled into believing that Gulzar would attend.

Shahid Rassam had planned to hold his exhibition, titled ‘Ghalib and Gulzar’, at Victoria Memorial Hall (VMH) Museum on February 20. Around 50 paintings and four murals were prepared for the exhibition in which Gulzar had apparently selected Ghalib’s verses for Rassam to paint.

“Out of 50, 36 of these paintings were to be exhibited at VMH Museum including murals as big as 25-by-15 feet,” Rassam told The Express Tribune. “It took me four years to work on this project and the sudden cancellation at the last moment over email is uncalled for,” he said. The artist also shared the news at a press conference in Karachi on February 28.
