April 03, 2018: Jubilee Life Insurance has partnered with The Lahore Biennale Foundation (LBF) for its inaugural two-week festival “Lahore Biennale 01: Shehr-o-Fun” which is taking place between March 18 and March 31 at seven major venues around Lahore.
Lahore’s largest public art event, the Lahore Biennale 01 aims to reposition the city in the global art world and as a regional cultural centre and engages with the city’s Mughal, colonial and modern layers.
Jubilee Life is the location sponsor for Maktab Khana at the Lahore Fort. In this special segment of Lahore Biennale 01, curated by artist Imran Qureshi in cooperation with the Aga Khan Museum, Toronto, a miniature-painting atelier has been set up at the Maktab Khana, Lahore Fort from March 16 to March 31. The atelier includes and showcases the skill of over twenty Pakistani miniaturists.
Mr. Javed Ahmed, Managing Director & CEO, Jubilee Life, shared that, “Jubilee Life is dedicated to promoting partnerships and in fostering art and culture in the country. Events like this are needed so we can uplift our artists and encourage the growth of local art. Lahore Biennale is a brilliant way to showcase both our artists and our culture and Jubilee Life is proud to endorse this event.”
The Lahore Biennale is held every 2 years with the aim of increasing public engagement in the Arts by transforming parts of the city into a ‘living art gallery’. Underlying this effort is experimentation, research, conversation and publication related to the arts; collaborative outreach and learning opportunities; and cultural exchange. Since the event is open to the public, 2.5 million visitors are expected to attend the event.
