“Spending a significant time of our lives at the same alma mater (Faculty of Fine Art, University of Dhaka) and graduating the same year made us become the best of friends, and also familiar with our artistic expressions. During the later years, after life took us over, we started discussing the journey that we never took. That is when this exhibition, which since has become an annual event, took root. We have been hosting ‘Colours’ annually for the past four years. These exhibitions are aimed at celebrating our journey and growth together. We showcase our works annually to consistently evolve and create dialogue about our practices.”
The participating artists are: Farhana Afroz, Farzana Islam, Monidipa Dasgupta, Mukti Bhowmik, Rebeka Sultana, Monira Sultana, Rehana Yesmin, Rifat Jahan and Shaila Akhter.
The exhibition will be open to all until Saturday, 31 August 2019.
Visiting hours: Monday to Thursday from 3 pm to 9 pm, Friday and Saturday from 9 am to 12 noon as well as 5 pm to 8 pm (closed on Sunday). – AFD Press release
