Artist Shumon Ahmed is guest presenter at SPEAKER, a series of talks by contemporary artists presented by the School of Art.
Shumon Ahmed (b. 1977, Bangladesh) is a Dhaka-based poet and an artist who explores the fusion between video, photography, sound, text and performance. His work with the camera and film has also been likened to abstract painting due to his experimental processing techniques with unpredictable results that yield the melancholic.
His work has been previously exhibited at the Kochi-Muziris Biennale, India, Dhaka Art Summit, Bangladesh, Whitechapel Gallery, London, Fotomuseum, Winterthur, Switzerland, Art science museum, Singapore, Krinzinger Projekete, Austria, and a recent solo exhibition at Project88, Mumbai, India.
This talk is presented in partnership with 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art.
