Replicas of Mughal Jewellery by Ahmed Haroon at Zenaini Art Gallery

The Zenaini Art Gallery exhibits replicas of Mughal style jewellery by Ahmed Haroon. Ahmed designed this jewellery in silver and sprinkled with a few grams of gold. The exhibits are reincarnations of the era when Nizams of the Mughal Empire ruled over individual principalities in the subcontinent. Ahmed Haroon has been doing this for the past seven or eight years.

Ahmed told that the idea behind the mix of silver, gold and stones was to make the pieces more affordable while fusing the past and the present.

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.
