Raqib Shaw

A solo exhibition by contemporary artist Raqib Shaw examining real and imagined spaces between the East and West.

Co-curated by Diana Campbell Betancourt, Director of Dhaka Art Summit, Dr. Maria Balshaw, Director of the Whitworth and Manchester Art Gallery and the artist. Shaw’s paintings will be combined with historic textiles, furniture and drawings from the Whitworth collection referencing Kashmir and the aesthetic of the East, echoing the opulent imagery and mythic space Shaw inhabits and creates in his paintings.

This exhibition will be reimagined for the South Asian context of the Dhaka Art Summit 2018.

24 June - November 2017
