The group exhibition “The World from My Eyes”, is to bring together the works of female artists to show the strength of women. In this exhibition more than 10 female artists, across Pakistan have participated including artists, architects and designers. These artists are not only practicing but also belong to academia and their art work speaks of their experience. How the artist perceives and transform the world within themselves? Their connection to the outer world is some times important and sometimes it is not. They dream about their work and passion. The world from my eyes is a show which reflect how they worked with deep heart.
