Discussion on contemporary art in Bangladesh held at ULAB

On Monday, October 30, University of Liberal Arts Bangladesh’s general education department has organised a panel discussion on ‘Contemporary Art Scene in Bangladesh’.

The panelists were Nadia Samdani, co-founder and president of the Samdani Art Foundation, Diana Campbell Betancourt, chief curator of Dhaka Art Summit, Mustafa Zaman, editor at Depart-The Art Magazine, Tanzim Wahab, chief curator of Bengal Foundation, Nazia Andaleeb Preema, eminent artist and professor of English of ULAB and art critique Syed Manzoorul Islam.

The discussion in this ULAB programme has brought a holistic understanding of the contemporary art industry in Bangladesh. Although contemporary art are thriving in Dhaka but general people are not cognizant of the recent developments in Bangladesh contemporary art, they buy art, visit museums and galleries with superficial knowledge.

This panel discussion has explored the current state of contemporary Bangladeshi art and what makes it such a unique form of expression within the broader international contemporary art scene.  Mustafa Zaman, editor at Depart moderated the panel discussion.
