  2. Club to Catwalk: London Fashion in the 1980s at the V&A, London

All Eyes Skywards, During the Annual Parade: is an observable shift from Rashid Rana’s two dimensional renderings to a more three dimensional manipulation of image and space in All Eyes Skyward. Small images of still from modern Indian cinema make up a crowd riveted by a Pakistan National Day parade.
Rashid Rana's Labyrinth of Reflections is by far the best ever contemporary art exhibition put up in Pakistan; in Artwallaa's view. (Photo Source: Mohatta Palace website)
