Friday Inspired: Dhaka Art Summit


For this week’s Friday Inspired, Veerangana Solanki shares with us some snapshots of the recent Dhaka Art Summit that took place in early February 2014. In its second edition, the Summit focused on art from the South Asian region and included solo art projects, curated shows, and art fair style booths by galleries that had been specially invited to participate. Visited by representatives from several international museums and foundations, and with an audience of over 50,000, the Summit has been seen as a great success, albeit with the reckoning that participants have taken greater risks than are usually seen on the art fair / biennial stage.

Veerangana, an independent curator and writer based in Mumbai, also curated an exhibition titled ‘Citizens of Time’ at the Summit that featured works by Remen Chopra, Vibha Galhotra, Riyas Komu, Baptist Coelho among others.
