My work was mentioned as a standout at the Dhaka Art Summit in the Sydney Morning Herald written by John McDonald, Art Critic and Historian. Check out the article in the link below.

I have been invited to exhibit at the 5th edition of the Dhaka Art Summit (DAS) in Dhaka, Bangladesh curated by Diana Campbell Betancourt. DAS is an international, non-commercial research and exhibition platform for art and architecture related to South Asia. With a core focus on Bangladesh, DAS re-examines how we think about these forms of art in both a regional and an international context. Founded in 2012 by the Samdani Art Foundation – which continues to produce the festival – in collaboration with the Ministry of Cultural Affairs, People’s Republic of Bangladesh, DAS is hosted every two years at the Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy.
