63 Commissariat

63 Commissariat, once a turn of the century family home, located in the midst of Old Karachi, behind the arterial M.A. Jinnah Road, the building embodies an eccentric history. Whilst its beautiful baby-blue façade, and large windows speaks of its original architectural context, it was then purchased by the Pagganwala family in the 1970s, used as a milk factory under Mas Dairies, and subsequently a manufacturing plant for Glacier Mineral Water in the 1990s, as well as an office. Its unique narrative as a building creates an idiosyncratic venue for contemporary art, encouraging artists to interact organically with such a singular space.
