Celebration in Lahore
National College of Arts Honors Imran Qureshi

Imran Qureshi’s artistic career began at the National College of Arts (NCA) in Lahore. He studied miniature painting at the NCA, and now he teaches there himself. Recently, Pakistan’s most important art institution held a big celebration to honor Deutsche Bank’s “Artist of the Year” 2013. Prof. Dr. Shabnam Khan, principle at National College of Arts, introduced the artist. Faizan Mitha, Chief Country Officer of Deutsche Bank in Pakistan, the German ambassador Dr. Cyrill Nunn, and Amna Naqvi of the Hong Kong Gandhara Art gallery also paid tribute to Qureshi in speeches. Christofer Habig, Global Head of Group Brand Communications & Corporate Citizenship, and Friedhelm Hütte, Global Head of Art sent video greetings to Lahore from Frankfurt.

The artist himself said: “The award means a lot to me. It's about a whole program which is not only beneficial for the artist but is also a great opportunity for people all over the world to know about that artist through this exhibition.  Apart from this, this is good news from Pakistan for Pakistani people and the artistic community which will project a positive image of the country to the outer world and that is the most important thing for me." Qureshi was also present at the NCA with his art. At the Zahoor ul Akhlaque Gallery, guests could watch as the “Artist of the Year” created a temporary installation. Naturally, his students couldn’t refrain from celebrating the distinction too. In the sculpture garden, they put on a performance in honor of their teacher.

Starting in April, Qureshi’s first comprehensive exhibition in Europe will be on view at the "Deutsche Bank KunstHalle" in Berlin. This show will mark the beginning of the program at the exhibition hall on Unter den Linden. In the summer, the “Artist of the Year” will realize an installation on the roof terrace of New York’s Metropolitan Museum. Additionally, work by Qureshi will also be shown at this year’s Venice Biennale.
