CODE OF CONDUCT, ART EXHIBITION BY MOHAMMAD HASANUR RAHMAN REAZ

Date: Tuesday, 19 December, 2017 to Tuesday, 02 January, 2018

Venue: La Galerie, Alliance Francaise

Reaz's art is a personal statement of his own experience, and he believes, as an artist, it is his response to the life around him. In his journey he found that his art represents a mark, a little sign of his existence per se, so Reaz feels a powerful impetus and a rational underpinning to create his work.

According to the artist, 'Code of Conduct' refers to the nature of the term and how a state can misemploy that for their citizenry. The leaders have their hearts set on being businessmen, pushing through a dystopian reality that will have no scope for humanity in it. Some nations are eager to concoct plots with religious bigotry sitting trigger-happy on a stockpile of nuclear weapons, rather than working on subjects like sustainable development, humanity or climate change. 'Code of Conduct' imparts sensitivity about emotion and empathy that we need in order to establish”.

THE LINE, THE WASH AND THE WISDOM: A SOLO ART EXHIBITION OF TANVIR AHMED

Date: Wednesday, 20 December – Sunday, 24 December

Time: 3 PM to 5 PM

Venue: Jatra Biroti, 60 Kemal Ataturk Avenue, Banani, Dhaka

It has been an interesting year to say the least, and what better way to end it but to share some love through a collection of pieces carelessly brainpicked!

Ahmed says 'carelessly brainpicked', because the theme of these works was accidentally delightful in their revelation. One of the last events of the year, but definitively one that will see it end with a bang.
