In Bangladesh, the 2016 Samdani Art Award exhibition (one of seven shows that was part of the Dhaka Art Summit) provided a survey of some of the most engaging young artists working there. Daniel Baumann, director of Kunsthalle Zürich, selected thirteen artists from over 300 applicants. In his introduction to the show, Baumann wrote that he had the sense that “something was going on there” when he visited to meet the short-listed artists and curate the final exhibition. Looking at a handful of these artists will elaborate just what that “something” might be.
