Lala Rukh

Artist and activist, Lala Rukh was a key figure in the Pakistani art scene. She taught for 30 years at Punjab University, Department of Fine Art and the National College of Arts where she set up the MA(Hons) Visual Art Program. Alongside her activity as a teacher and fierce defender of women’s rights, she produced a humble yet profound body of work characterized by sober, minimal forms. This simplicity and economy of means allowed the artist to cut herself off from the world around her and project instead a world of dreams and memories onto the sheet of paper.

His work was included in the exhibition 'Luogo e Segni' (2019) at Punta della Dogana.
