The first Vasl International Artists’ Residency to take place in Lahore was aimed at creating a platform for the exchange of ideas through the multiple practices of the participating artists. By working together in a close proximity for a sustained period of time, the 5 artists created personal exchange of ideas, information, and cultural understanding, contributing towards building art and culture in Pakistan. The International Artists Workshop in January 2007 was also aimed at projecting Lahore’s culture with the international contemporary art circles, highlighting the city’s rich history and architecture.
