Twelve Gates Arts presents an original set of collaborative works by contemporary artists Abdullah Qureshi, Aziz Sohail & Zulfikar Ali Bhutto. Qureshi, founder of Gallery 39K in Lahore and Bhutto, have previously collaborated as curators of a five-show series titled Is Saye Kay Parcham Talay (“The Shadow Over Our Flag”), 2015-2016, which aimed to create inclusive conversations around minority rights and marginalization in Pakistan. Bhutto is also currently co-curator of The Third Muslim: Queer and Trans Muslim Narratives of Resistance and Resilience, which has instigated a national conversation around the politics of self-representation in the arts. In 2017, Sohail was a South Asian Studies Fellow at Cornell University and was the curator of Islam Contemporary, 2013.
