Dhaka Live Art Biennale is a bi-annual Live Art event, launched in 2017 by the non-profit art initiative BACK Art Foundation, is an international and public platform where gap between art and public narrows down as the body itself is used as means of art. In 2019, the second edition of D’LAB brings to the audience 28 international artists from 26 countries along with local artists and artisans from Bangladesh totaling up to more than a hundred artists in one platform. The event will therefore host an amalgamation of artistic thoughts from countries like, Brazil, China, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Italy, Ireland, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Nepal, Netherlands, Norway, Pakistan, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sri Lanka, USA, UK, Vietnam. The initiative was taken with the aim to design a meeting-point that would encompass our nation’s history in live art practices, the current local performing artists and troupes, the local contemporary performance artists and international performance artists from all around the globe.
The theme of D’LAB 2019 was “Performing Tradition and Text”.
Exhibition Dates: 02 February – 14 February 2019
