Durjoy Bangladesh Foundation (DBF) Presents First Edition of Majhi International Art Residency Programme in Venice

1 month ago

Presented by Durjoy Bangladesh Foundation (DBF) and curated by Caterina Corni, the first edition of Majhi International Art Residency Programme will run from 20 July to 11 August, 2019 in Venice .

Organised in collaboration with Lightbox, Majhi takes places at Combo, the former Convento dei Crociferi, just few steps away from the Venetian city centre. Here the artists will live and work from July 20th to August 3rd, to produce a collective exhibition opening on August 3rd, 2019. The exhibition will remain open to the public from August 4 –11, 2019 in the same location and a catalogue will be produced by the curator in collaboration with cataloguer and recorder Laura Amman.

The artists – Dilara Begum Jolly, Dhali Al-Mamoon, Rajaul Islam (Lovelu), Noor Ahmed Gelal, Uttam Kumar Karmaker and Kamruzzaman Shadhin, Umut Yasat, Chiara Tubia, Cosima Montavoci, Andrea Morucchio, David Dalla Venezia – come from different regions of the world: six of them are born in Bangladesh, another one’s cultural roots divide between Turkey and Germany while four are Venetians. Over their stay, the artists are invited to reflect upon the open question “Does life in these uncertain times of crisis and turmoil, make art more interesting?” inspired by the title of the 58th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia, curated by Ralph Rugoff “May You Live in Interesting Times”. As a result of their work, they will also choose a title for their exhibition.

The Durjoy Bangladesh Foundation was established in 2018 to promote art and artists from South Asia and beyond. DBF supports artists in creating new artworks and to engage art practitioners in relevant exhibitions, publications and residencies. Having offices in Berlin and Dhaka, DBF offers a conduit to connect art and artists between Asia, Europe and beyond.

Biennale Architettura 2020: Hashim Sarkis and Paolo Baratta Presented “How Will We Live Together?”

2 months ago

Today Curator Hashim Sarkis and President of La Biennale Paolo Baratta met the press at Ca’ Giustinian to announce theme and details of the 17th International Architecture Exhibition which will take place from May 23rd to November 29th, 2020 (opening days May 21 –22) at the Giardini and the Arsenale and around other venues in Venice.

Talking about “How will we live together”, the theme of the upcoming edition, Hashim Sarkis stated: “We need a new spatial contract. In the context of widening political divides and growing economic inequalities, we call on architects to imagine spaces in which we can generously live together: togetheras human beings who, despite our increasing individuality, yearn to connect with one another and with other species across digital and real space; together as new households looking for more diverse and dignified spaces for inhabitation; together as emerging communities that demand equity, inclusion and spatial identity; together across political borders to imagine new geographies of association; and together as a planet facing crises that require global action for us to continue living at all […] The year 2020 has often been referred to as a milestone on the path to a better future. Many nations and cities have devised a ‘Vision 2020.’ The year is upon us. We look to the collective architectural imagination to meet this momentous occasion with creativity and courage.”

By now 34 countries have confirmed their participation as National Participations and as usual the exhibition will include Collateral Events, presented by international institutions.
