So, on Friday and today, I went to the Dhaka Art Summit. The Dhaka Art Summit (DAS) is the world’s biggest South Asia art show, and I got to see it!!!!
The first time I went was with my parents and sister on the day of the grand unveiling. And grand it was! I was a bit apprehensive, because I don’t see myself as an arty person, but it was super cool. The first little room contained a photo series titled “Land of Undefined Territory”, all about people exploiting the land that lies between the India and Bangladesh border. I walked in and knew that this was going to be the art exhibition to end all art exhibitions. And I was right!
