Transitions: New Photography from Bangladesh
Taslima Akhter
24th April 2013, 9am. Becoming a brutal incident of history, a nine-story commercial building Rana Plaza collapsed at Savar, Dhaka, Bangladesh and left more than 1134 workers dead

The Bangladeshi American Creative Collective (BACC) is proud to present Transitions: New Photography from Bangladesh, on view at The Bronx Museum of the Arts from October 15, 2015 to February 14, 2016.

We teeter on moments of change, brought by forces that reach in and push out. Memories checker our thoughts; we wonder what decisions will be carved into the borders that frame our histories, and futures. What hangs in the balance, what will reach its limit, and where? And afterwards, what tokens will we be left with: a hesitant embrace, a scar, a burst of light? Our stories weave in and out of these visions.

With the rise of factories, investors, and development, the landscape of Bangladesh is changing. The spotlight has been turned on, and the people are trying to figure out what it means for them. This exhibition will feature nine Bangladeshi photographers whose work reflects a diverse group of people, shifting economies, and changing lands. Its aim is to not only to collect and exhibit photography as art; but also as ideas about the country of Bangladesh.

Jannatul Mawa: Close Distance
Housemaids in Bangladesh traditionally work for just two meals a day. Their job consists of assisting the middle-class women (housewives and working women). They don’t have a work schedule or salaries. Such cheap labor is rare in the world – a mere 15 dollars a month.

These photos navigate the stories of its people, landscapes, and its position in the world. Most importantly, the works provide viewers with perspectives of artists that are connected to the places they are capturing. We are proud to be collaborating with a cultural institution that is exploring the documentation of its own changing home, the borough of the Bronx, which is home to a growing generation of new Bangladeshi Americans. We hope to open important discussions around the meaning of changes, shifts, and transitions across generations and communities.

Participating Artists: Arfun Ahmed, Taslima Akhter, Debashish Chakrabarty, Rasel Chowdhury, Samsul Alam Helal, Jannatul Mawa, Manir Mrittrik, Saikat Mojumder, Tapash Paul
