Dhaka Art Summit

The fourth edition of the Dhaka Art Summit


The fourth edition of the Dhaka Art Summit

  • The fourth edition of the Dhaka Art Summit (DAS) will be held from February 2 to 10, 2018. Produced and primarily funded by the Samdani Art Foundation, DAS 2018 will be held in a public-private partnership with the Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy, the country’s National Academy of Fine and Performing Arts, with the support of the Ministry of Cultural Affairs and Ministry of Information of the People’s Republic of Bangladesh, the National Tourism Board, the Bangladesh Investment Development Authority (BIDA), and in association with the Bangladesh National Museum. 

    DAS is unique in its ability to be a true hub for art and architecture related to South Asia. Expanding on the success of past editions, DAS 2018 will extend its duration of exhibitions and programming to nine days, and will, for the first time, widen its focus to create new connections between South, Southeast Asia, and the Indian Ocean belt, highlighting the dynamic evolution of art in contemporary South Asia and reviving historical inter-Asian modes of exchange. Over three hundred artists will exhibit across ten curated exhibitions, and over one hundred and twenty speakers from all over the world will participate in sixteen panel discussions and two symposiums that strive to ground future developments of art in South Asia within the region’s rich, yet lesser-known, past. 

    For the first time, DAS 2018 will feature both an Opening Celebration Weekend (February 2–4) and a closing Scholars’ Weekend (February 8–10), with several tiers of new programming slated for both.

    This will be the third Summit led by Samdani Art Foundation Artistic Director, Diana Campbell Betancourt, who returns as the Chief Curator of DAS 2018.
