curators Lahore Biennale Foundation

The Inaugural Plaque represents the multiple plaques located at every street corner in various cities, erected by the municipality. These follies announce and deliberate to the commoner to be gracious for a new road or for another newly constructed folly by the road side. The text in Urdu is composed by the writer Musharraf Ali Farooqi, a rhetoric about ‘a Saba Khan’ as the supreme curator, or Numaish Gar (a word coined by Musharraf) which toys with the notions of the curatorial/bureaucratic similarities.
