Daniel Boyd will be presenting a new body of work in A beast, a god, and a line as part of the Dhaka Art Summit in Bangladesh. Curated by Cosmin Costinas, this exhibition is woven by connections and circulations of ideas across a geography with Bengal at its core. Commonly called Asia-Pacific, it could also be defined by several other definitions, which the exhibition will explore and untangle. Overlapping and sometimes conflicting or barely discernible beneath the strident layers of contemporaneity and the modern waves of destruction, these worlds are still the pillars of a region that is going through a process of replacing its colonial cartographic coordinates, a process this exhibition proudly serves.
Opening February 2, the exhibition runs until 10 February at the Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy.
