LAHORE: A solo exhibition of drawings titled, Contested Cartography, by Dubai-based artist Saba Qizilbash is happening at the Gurmani Centre for Language and Literature of the Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS). The works, a source of immense joy for the visual art lovers, will remain on display till March 20.
