Indian, Pakistani women aim to create colours of hope

New Delhi: Five women artists from Pakistan and four contemporary Indian artists will feature in an exhibition that begins here March 28 with an aim to display a "language of unity and love".

Organised by Empowerment, an NGO that advocates using art and culture as tools for social change, the six-day exhibition titled "Colours of Hope" is based on the core idea of creating a sense of amalgamation.

Apart from exhibiting three works each, Pakistani artists Ayesha Durrani, Fizza Salem, Amna Ilyas, Romessa Khan and Mariam Khan, and Indian artists Gogi Saroj Pal, Seema Kohli, Nupur Kundu and Sonika Agarwal will also create a 10-metre-long canvas on the theme "Colour of Hope".

"It (exhibition) focuses on a few intangible factors like share, emotion, peace, feminism and love. Share is one of the main things the exhibition is hoping to promote," an official statement said Wednesday.

The exhibition, to be mounted at the Indian Council for Cultural Relations, will end April 2.
