The work premiered in February at the third biennial Dhaka Art Summit in the Bangladeshi capital. An initiative of the private Samdani Art Foundation, it is held at the government-owned Shilpakala Academy. The free event drew more than 138,000 visitors, almost double the figure for 2014. In only five years, the summit has surmounted a nightmare of logistics (art from near neighbours in the politically tense subcontinent must be shipped via Dubai or Hong Kong) to raise the global profile of artists from a country more often subsumed under India.
