A to Z Zainul

Twenty-five installations, based on Wahed’s research on legendary Bangladeshi artist Zainul Abedin, will be on display

Bangladeshi artist Sumon Wahed’s art exhibit “A to Z Zainul” has opened at the Zainul Gallery in the Faculty of Fine Arts of University of Dhaka. It will run from August 12 till August 17, starting at 11am and going to 8pm each day; with free admission. Twenty-five installations, based on Wahed’s research on legendary Bangladeshi artist Zainul Abedin, will be on display.

Sumon Wahed recently said in a statement: “I have studied Shilpacharya [Zainul] at different ages, from different perspectives. The current reading is from the perspective of ‘Zainul as a colonial critic’. Questions may arise about how one can criticize colonialism while simultaneously building an institution inspired by the colonial education system. Yet, Zainul’s art first showed me the mass murders, caused by the famine—[itself] created by colonial rulers. His criticisms of colonialism may not be as clearly visible as most of his work has a more humanist touch to it. 

I want to see: modern art practice, colonialism, the sub-continental partition, and the indigenous community through Zainul’s artworks,” he added.

Sumon is currently working as a Lecturer at the Department of Drawing and Painting of Faculty of Fine Art, University of Dhaka.
