আত্ম-অন্বেষণ; Soul Searching

Curated by Md. Muniruzzaman

 

আত্ম-অন্বেষণ; Soul Searching looks into the roots of Bangladeshi Art which started from a modern era influenced by Shilpacharya Zainul Abedin, S.M Sultan, Qamrul Hassan and Safiuddin Ahmed. To discover their own identity within a new nation, they eventually relied on the cultural and environmental heritage of Bangladesh. According to Zainul Abedin, the river was his muse, SM Sultan’s search for his artistic self took him to the remote village of Narail. Qamrul Hassan discovered himself as a Potua (folk painter) and Shafiuddin Ahmed’s modern prints reflected mixture of folk and urban approach of abstracted fishermen’s landscapes. 50 Bangladeshi artists will consider the last generation’s approach to discover themselves through artistic journies in the contemporary and increasingly urbanized context of Bangladesh.
