(Dis) Place: An exhibition of contemporary art

Dec, 2018

(Dis)Place inquiries about the specifics of Bangladesh – the "local" – while it also attempts to bring perspective into the very notion of place. Sketching the contours of a place while discussing what place as an idea might entail is a paradox underlying the project. It touches upon topics as urgent to the country as they are to the world: shifting environments, migration, marginalisation, economic or cultural appropriation. The show further discusses related issues of borders and place(s) ownership, and of utopian sensibilities vis-à-vis forced displacements.

Participants of the show include Bengal Institute for Architecture, Landscapes and Settlements, Shahidul Alam, Tayeba Begum Lipi, Ronni Ahmmed, Najmun Nahar Keya,  Afsana Sharmin Zhumpa, Shimul Saha,  Zihan Karim,  Sarker Protick,  Sayed Asif Mahmud and  Md Shamsul Arifin.
