Paris 2023


Paris, France

Durjoy Bangladesh Foundation (DBF) is thrilled to announce the launch of the Majhi International Art Residency 2023, set to unfold in the captivating city of Paris from 7 – 23 October 2023. This edition marks the latest chapter in DBF’s ongoing commitment to bridging the art communities from the East and the West.

During this two-week residency in the City of Light, three selected artists of Asia and the Asian diaspora— Rajyashri Goody, Raisa Kabir, Aiko Tezuka will embark on a journey of artistic exploration. They will be commissioned to create new and unique artworks that will serve as a testament to their artistic research and cultural exchange. The culmination of their artistic endeavors will be showcased in a curated group exhibition, offering a glimpse into the creative practices of these international artists. The residency and exhibition is under the direction and curation of Paris-based guest curator Ricko Leung.

The Majhi International Art Residency, born from the concept of a migrating residency throughout Europe, is arriving in the heart of Paris this year after successfully engaging the art scenes of Venice, Berlin, and Eindhoven since its inception in 2019.
