Abstraction as an idiom has always been defined in relation to the artist’s ability to empty the painted space of all contents. Though this artistic conviction never held sway over the exponent of abstraction in Dhaka. Yet in the discursive field abstraction was mostly perceived as a total effacement of visual cues, be that to natural or human environment. The works of Hamiduzzaman Khan stand testimony to how effacement often translates into an unfurling of the metonymic visuals which work as a bridge between the interior landscape and the world outside. His watercolour works often bring into view some fragments through which an archaeology of memory is rolled out to the viewer for the viewers to partake of the same.
Dwip gallery is set to present his watercolour works under the title Feeling the Void.
As a part of its journey through the existing ecology of contemporary art, 180 Degrees organized ‘মুহূর্তমা’ – ‘Momentum’ an art exhibition by Shamset Tabrejee, curated by Mustafa Zaman. Shamset Tabrejee is well known as a poet—an artist of words. ‘Udvastu Chirkut’, ‘Amro Kanone Mabhoi Koler Gan, ‘Osru Movaroj ‘Muhurtoma’ etc. are some of his poetry collections’ name. This poet, seems, not satisfied only within the play with words. ‘180 Dgrees’ would like to present Tabrejee’s poetry with colours at his art exhibition. Since it would be a comprehensive showcasing of his works, with a selection of paintings from recently produced works determining the show’s final character, I would like to ensure it to be an impactful event.
Pre-eminent artist Monirul Islam, poet Mashrur Arefin, managing director of the City Bank Ltd, artist Shishir Bhattacharjee and poet Sazzad Sharif will be present as guests at the opening of the exhibition, organized by 180 Degrees, on July 27, 2019, at 5:00 pm.
