'Upheavals' is an exhibition that explores contemporary Bangladesh through the eyes of eight Bangladeshi artists of three generations. It examines the ambiguous power of change through three generations of artists from Bangladesh. The notion of transformation carries a potent paradox, one that pits the aspiration – where the old can be subsumed in a new, bettered state – against the sinister – through which what initially was is either destroyed or no longer recognisable. As a country, as an idea, Bangladesh provides a unique ground to discuss this ambiguity.

A few artworks in the exhibition allude to the quick succession of departures and disruptions that have characterised Bangladesh's recent history. Others hints at the radical evolution that have profoundly impacted the way its people live and think in the past decades. If 'Upheaveals' pencils a landscape in perpetual motion, it leaves open the question of the destination.

‘Upheavals’ is part of the official programme of Kathmandu Triennale 2017, and was jointly inaugurated by H.E. Ms. Mashfee Binte Shams, Ambassador of Bangladesh to Nepal, and Ms. Sangeeta Thapa, Founder & Chair, Kathmandu Triennale, on 26 March 2017.  

The show will continue until 9 April 2017, everyday from 11 AM to 7 PM.
