During the later years, after life took us over, we started discussing the journey that we never took. That is when this exhibition, which since has become an annual event, took root. We have been hosting ‘Colours’ annually for the past four years. These exhibitions are aimed at celebrating our journey and growth together. We showcase our works annually to consistently evolve and create dialogue about our practices, said the organisers.”

The participating artists are—Farhana Afroz, Farzana Islam, Monidipa Dasgupta, Mukti Bhowmik, Rebeka Sultana, Monira Sultana, Rehana Yesmin, Rifat Jahan and Shaila Akhter.

The exhibition will continue till August 31. Visiting hours:  Monday to Thursday from 3 pm to 9 pm, Friday and Saturday from 9 am to 12 pm as well as 5 pm to 8 pm. The exhibition will remain close on Sunday.
