In January 2001, the Amin Gulgee Gallery had its first group show when it exhibited the work of twelve Pakistani artists as well as artists from India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Egypt, Nigeria, China, the
Netherlands, the UK and the USA. The exhibit represented the work produced at VASL, a workshop organized through the UK-based Triangle Art Trust and financed in part by the Prince Klaus Foundation in the Netherlands. VASL took
place over a two-week period at Gadani, a ship-breaking yard on the coast of the Pakistani desert province of Balochistan, during which time the 24 artists (including Amin, a trustee of the VASL workshop) discoursed and worked.
