Brihatta Art Foundation welcomes Belgian artist Koen Vanmechelen to Bangladesh

Brihatta Art Foundation and Koen Vanmechelen are excited to announce their upcoming collaboration on the Cosmopolitan Chicken Project (CCP) in the fall of 2023. Within the context of this collaboration, Vanmechelen travels to Bangladesh during the last week of March and will give a talk at the University of Dhaka.

Vanmechelen has been working for over 20 years at the intersection of art, community and science. His passion is based on the belief in art as a driver of mutual understanding and as a guide in the search for answers to the major challenges of the 21st century, the relationship between nature and culture and in particular the development of sustainable communities.

Brihatta believes CCP will expose Bangladeshi creatives (from different genres) to a new way of seeing, thinking and creating; through dynamic engagements with Vanmechelen, and of course, the local Aseel community. Brihatta Art Foundation invites Vanmechelen to present his work and philosophy during an artist talk at the Auditorium in Faculty of Fine Art, University of Dhaka, on 28th March, 2023. The talk will be open to the general public (after registration).

As an art foundation with a strong focus on community engagement and collaborations, Brihatta is able to draw parallels with Vanmechelens’s philosophy and ethos
