Para Site, Samdani Art Foundation, and Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw are pleased to present “A beast, a God, and a Line” in its inaugural iteration at the Dhaka Art Summit 2018. This major travelling exhibition curated by Cosmin Costinas, is woven by connections and circulations of ideas across a geography with Bengal at its core. Commonly called Asia-Pacific, it could also be defined by several other definitions, which the exhibition will explore and untangle. Overlapping and sometimes conflicting or barely discernible beneath the strident layers of contemporaneity and the modern waves of destruction, these worlds are still the pillars of a region that is going through a process of replacing its colonial cartographic coordinates, a process this exhibition proudly serves.
