Dhaka Art Summit 2016

February 5, 2016 - February 8, 2016

The exhibition speculates if a South Asian view can be articulated, assembling and repositioning works that speak to the themes and aesthetics of the genre. Astral journeys, cosmological quests, astronomical explorations, alien encounters, nihilistic visions, retro-futurist experiments and a need to reimagine the future will here be addressed by artists who have experienced the wonder, the hubris and excesses of the space age from a slightly different tilt on the universe.
