Pakistan has once again made headlines in New York City, but this time it’s for a good reason. Go Figureis a group show of young aspiring artists from Pakistan, showcased at Aicon Art Gallery in the East Village area of the city. The prospect of meeting Pakistani artists and art lovers in the city kept me excited for days before the inauguration. The show was exceptionally well curated, displaying highly imaginative illustrative, graphic and sensual work. On the opening night of art shows in New York, art-loving crowds wander from gallery to gallery to admire all the new work that is up on display. The reception for Go Figure was very warm and welcoming. In my opinion, this particular group show was the most impressive show that is currently being exhibited. It got incredible reviews from viewers and art critics alike who were present at the opening reception.
