DAS 2018 has eliminated the gallery section of past summits, where local and international galleries were given free space to exhibit artists of South Asian origin. In association with the Samdani Artist Led Initiatives Forum, the area previously associated with galleries will now include curated presentations of eleven of Bangladesh’s most vibrant artist-led initiatives. February 4th-7th will serve as the first “Artist-Led Initiatives Summit” within the Dhaka Art Summit, where these initiatives—as well as other initiatives from Nepal, North East India, and Bhutan—will present their work and make plans for future regional and international collaborations.
