AAN Publications

Documentation in the visual arts is critical as it supports research and scholarship on the prevailing art practice. It has been the vision of AAN & Gandhara publications to document the Pakistani contemporary art space as there was a dearth of research and documentation both in publication as well as in the digital realm. Therefore, it has published more than twenty five stellar publications under Gandhara Art on arts and artists to date with essays by scholars and writers such as Dr. Virginia Whiles, Salima Hashmi, Suzanne Cotter, Sue Acret, Quddus Mirza, Dr. Fatima Zahra Hassan and Dr. Iftikhar Dadi so as to enable research in this field. Books on the artists published include Imran Qureshi, Aisha Khalid, Rashid Rana, Bani Abidi, Khadim Ali & Risham Syed. AAN Publications has also launched publishing related projects such as Scroll: Projects on Paper, which is now part of the ‘Publishing Against The Grain’ exhibition and is being exhibited internationally beginning with Zeitz Museum of Contemporary African Art in Cape town, South Africa.
