Homelands: Art from Bangladesh, India and Pakistan

Kettle’s Yard, University of Cambridge, Castle Street

The exhibition – a collaboration between the University of Cambridge and Durjoy Bangladesh Foundation (DBF) – is curated by Devika Singh with Amy Tobin and Grace Storey and deals with the topic of migration and resettlement in South Asia and it does through photography, sculpture, painting, performance and film.

The exhibition engages with displacement and the transitory notion of home in a region marked by the repercussions of the Partition of India and Pakistan in 1947, and the independence of Bangladesh in 1971, as well as by contemporary migration. The artists explore intimate and political histories, often contesting borders, questioning common pasts and imagining new futures.

On January 18, 2020 a symposium titled “Homelands: Art, conflict and displacement in art from Bangladesh, India and Pakistan”, explores themes of the exhibition and concludes the complementary public programming beginning in November by Durjoy Bangladesh Foundation (DBF).
