THE AAN FOUNDATION PARTHERS WITH THE LAHORE BIENNALE FOUNDATION TO LAUNCH THE AAN-LBF RESEARCH GRANT 2018
"We at the AAN Foundation are pleased to be launching the LBF-AAN Research Grant with the Lahore Biennale. The LBF-AAN Research Grant was bestowed at the same time as the Central Sponsorship for the Inaugural Lahore Biennale by the AAN Foundation.
We believe research and documentation of art in Pakistan is integral to its robustness and growth. This will provide opportuni...ties to scholars, historians, and practitioners to germinate new ideas, and trace the movements and shifts in the development of art and its related fields.
We would like to thank our panel of Jurors; Prof Salima Hashmi, Prof Naazish Ata-Ullah and Naiza Khan (who is also the Mentor), who will help bring the LBF-AAN Research Grant to fruition".
- Amna Naqvi, Co-Founder
The AAN Foundation provides support to a wide range of art forms and encourages discourse on visual arts in particular. This includes offering platforms & support for exhibitions, private as well as public art projects, publications and art related initiatives. From a geographic perspective, the foundation is focussed on enabling and encouraging the arts in Pakistan, as well as considering the broader Asian region including Asia Pacific and South Asia. A very significant part of the AAN Foundation's aim is to provide support at the very initial/conceptual stages, to projects, which could become platforms for further strengthening the artistic space in their own areas and geographies.
