The first “Last Image Show” Exhibition is a platform that aims to bring into one space art works that challenge the ways in which societal conventions constrain how artists express their individuality.

This year; 35 Artists, from 21 Countries have explore the theme of 'SILENCE' from different perspectives and in different contexts, using artistic mediums and creative expression. Where an attempt is made to refute individual expressions by means of unspoken rules, freedom of speech is affected. The exhibition offers a safe space for artists to bring their contribution and share their understanding of the theme of silence in their societies and communities, of being silenced and of breaking the silence, and to explore and articulate issues of local as well as global significance.
