Time to Navigate

Solo Exhibition by Mujtaba Asif

in collaboration with Canvas Gallery & Khurram Kasim Art Foundation

April 9 – April 18, 2019

Mujtaba Asif is the recipient of the first Vasl-KKAF Research Grant in 2018 and was also a resident artist for the Taaza Tareen 10 residency, Bijli, Pani aur Gas. Time to Navigate is a solo exhibition by Mujtaba Asif, exhibited at the prestigious Canvas Gallery, Karachi on April 9 – April 18, 2019. The exhibition is the culmination of Mujtaba’s year long work in Karachi, bringing together expansive research and individual creativity. 

In 2018, Vasl Artists’ Association launched a research grant to a qualifying resident of Vasl’s annual Taaza Tareen Residency. The Vasl Research Grant is designed to be awarded to emerging visual artists who are diligent in their work, committed to their practice and show an avid interest in building close ties with the art community. The jury panel for the 2018 Vasl Research Grant comprised of Mr. Amin Gulgee, Mr. Khurram Kasim, Mr. Quddus Mirza and Ms. Sameera Raja.

A multi-disciplinary artist, Mujtaba completed his Bachelors in Fine Art with distinction from the Department of Visual Studies at the University of Karachi in 2015. His works combine an array of media, ranging from delicate paper and clay constructions to meticulously reworked found objects, graffiti, signage, and collaborative workshops with the local diverse communities and groups, which intervene the idea of a physical and conceptual space.
