Zaid Islam’s photography exhibition begins tomorrow

A two-week solo art exhibition by Zaid Islam titled ‘I Was Colourblind’ will begin tomorrow at the Kalakendra in the capital’s Mohamadpur area. Curated by Wakilur Rahman, the inaugural ceremony of the exhibition will be held tomorrow at 6:30pm on the gallery premises.

About the exhibition Zaid said, “When I travelled to New York in 2016, many things in my life were in transition– family, education, career, life choices. I realized over time that my transitions were in parallel to dramatic shifts happening on a national scale. After November 8th that same year, all of America was trying to cope with something drastic, something unimaginable. There was a revival of fascist, misogynistic, homophobic, Islamophobia, racist, colonial and neocolonial white supremacist brutality. Some would say it never went away, but suddenly the masks and gloves were off. In face of all this, I observed resistance. I became aware of the many different identities I carry. I am Muslim. I am Brown. I am an Immigrant.”
Zaid is a New York based Bangladeshi artist who explores the role of documentation in the social practice art. His work includes direct public interventions like ‘Bus-e Genjam’ in collaboration with PothonatokerDol street theatre group, ‘One Billion Rising Photo Booth, Shahbag’, graffiti and sticker projects, and shows at public spaces including Chhobirhaat. He attended Pathshala South Asian Media Institute, and recently earned a Queens College CUNY MFA. Prior to getting his MFA, he worked for many years as a senior staff photojournalist at a national daily newspaper in Bangladesh. This is his fourth solo exhibition in Dhaka.
The exhibition will remain open to all every day from 4:30pm to 8pm, until March 31.
