Rohtas 2 Gallery

Rohtas 2 Gallery in a private art gallery in Lahore Pakistan which showcases contemporary art that is thought provoking and culturally relevant. The gallery opened in 2001 by Salima Hashmi as an extension of the original Rohtas Gallery (est. 1981) located in Rawalpindi / Islamabad. From its very origins, the intention behind the gallery in Lahore has been to educate both artists as well as the audience and, according to promotional material, “foster an environment of inquiry and debate on cultural and art related issues, with a view to promoting tolerance and creativity”. Rohtas II Gallery has provided a space for some of Lahore’s brightest emerging and established artists, including Farida Batool, Faiza Butt, Aisha Khalid and Imran Qureshi. (
