Rajeeb and Nadia Samdani of Bangladesh have carved out a niche as supporters and promoters of South Asian art. Based in Dhaka, the couple founded the Samdani Art Foundation in 2011 to raise awareness of Bangladeshi contemporary art. In 2012, the foundation put on the first edition of the Dhaka Art Summit, or DAS, a noncommercial research and exhibition for South Asian art. The third edition will take place Feb. 5-8, 2016. Mr. Samdani is also the co-chair of Tate Modern’s South Asian acquisitions committee. The couple spoke recently with Ginanne Brownell Mitic about their work.
