LAHORE - The formal opening of a new art gallery with the name of “Avant-Garde & Kitsch” took place here on Sunday at Saint John Park in Lahore Cantonment.

In the presence of a good number of art lovers, it was inaugurated with the launch of  Hatchery Show which features work of five young artists-Anas Ghauri, Ayesha Akbar, Haider Ali, Numair Abassi and Sidra Asim.

Hana and Hasan Altaf, the two young architects of this art gallery, said that they had been avid collectors of contemporary Pakistani art and it was this passion that led them to launch a platform for wide ranging experiments with ideas and projects previously untested in the local art scene.
