A slew of superstar curators, including ones from the Tate Modern, the Pompidou and the Rubin, are now on board for the upcoming Dhaka Art Summit. The huge biennial of South Asian art, now in its third iteration, will be held in the capital of Bangladesh February 5 through 8, 2016. The Dhaka Art Summit also will be free and open to the public, a rarity among international art events and a new policy for Dhaka in 2016. The exhibition has also expanded beyond film, performance, sculpture, painting and drawing to include architecture, experimental writing and a historical exhibition for the first time. Samdani Art Foundation Artistic Director Diana Campbell Betancourt will be joined by Daniel Baumann (Director of the Kunsthalle in Zurich), Beth Citron (Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Rubin Museum of Art), Aurelien Lemonier (Architecture Curator at the Centre Pompidou), Nada Raza (assistant curator at Tate Modern) and Amara Antilla (assistant curator at the Guggenheim Museum, New York) as curators of the show.
