Special Merchandise and Spectacular Exhibition
Those attending will also have a chance to collect some pretty special merchandise including some very playful-designed matchboxes and more importantly, attend a spectacular exhibition called Rang-Saazi, -a curated showcase for contemporary visual artists to broadly explore and interpret music as a subject and subculture and its influence as an integral part of our collective, historical, and cultural identities.
Those who will participate in this exhibit include artists such as Alia Bilgrami, Asad Aly, Bibi Hajra Cheema, Hamza Iftikar, Haris Hidayat Ullah, Hassan Shah Gillani, Humayun Memon, Samya Arif, Mina Arham, Mehreen Murtaza, Omar Gillani, Rahema Zaheer, Saad Khurshid, Sara Pagganwala, Shehzil Malik and Tree House (Ali Reza Dossal & Mariyam Iftikar).
Hardwork and Careful Thought!
A lot of hard work and careful thought has gone into the construction of this third edition and anyone remotely interested in the music coming out of Pakistan, must make it a point to head to LMM this weekend.
