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.
