About The Exhibition: “The role of artists in the society is monumental. Truly there are no alternatives to practising art when it comes to illuminating the social psyche. The social psyche comprises of manifold vantage points, needs, wants, and attention spans that may sum up to an impenetrable wall of noirishness that only art can break through. So artists have to try to be very clear in articulating their purpose and sort of ‘ride’ their art where both expression and communication may manifest ideas in various cogitable forms. This art exhibition is an attempt at that.”
More than thirty artworks in various media such as watercolour, acrylic, oil, woodcut, mixed media, among others will be exhibited. The participating artists from the Faculty of Fine Art, University of Dhaka are Afia Airin, Ajay Shanyal, Anika Tasnim, Shakil Mozumder, Purnia Mrittika, Shipra Bishwas and Rony Mandol.
The exhibition will be open to all till 29 November 2019 at Galerie Zoom.
