John Tain – Curator LB03


It is our pleasure to announce that John Tain has been appointed as the curator for LB03, scheduled for February 2024.

Join us on April 17th at 11:30 am in Alhamra Hall No. 2 to hear John’s vision for the third edition of the Lahore Biennale!

As Head of Research at Asia Art Archive, and as a curator at the Getty Research Institute, John has curated or co-curated numerous exhibitions, including “Translations, Expansions” for AAA’s contribution to documenta fifteen, and “Crafting Communities” (2020). He also co-organized the important research project MAHASSA (with the Dhaka Art Summit and Cornell University), which explored modern art histories across Africa and South and Southeast Asia. John’s expertise and dedication to the field have led to his serving as an advisor for Asia Forum, and on the editorial collective for the Intersecting Modernisms publication.

We are excited to see the innovative and insightful ideas he brings to LB03!
