artSPEAK is a public programme initiated by Lahore Biennale Foundation in 2015 to provide a platform for critical discourse on diverse topics by creative practitioners. artSPEAK has initiated discussions on performative practices, artist residencies, pedagogy, and representations of gender minorities. There has been a particular focus on fostering new disciplinary connections with the aim of sparking fresh discoveries.
For LB01, artSPEAK continued this ethos by engaging with practitioners whose work was part of the Biennale. This series of lectures and panels curated by Aziz Sohail highlighted elements of artistic practices, with the audience being a key interlocutor. It allowed for the audience to engage with the work on display, and for the artists to re-examine their own practices.
