Riaz’s ‘Code of Conduct’ at Alliance Francaise

By

Sheikh Arif Bulbon :
“My art is a very personal statement of my own experience, and I believe, as an artist it is my response to the life around me. In my journey I found that my art represent a mark left by me, a little sign of my existence per se, so I feel a powerful impetus and a rational underpinning to create my art.”
Artist Riaz’s soul tells him to explicate his true expression against all the discrimination happening in our society. His solo exhibition titled ‘Code of Conduct’ refers to the nature of the term and how a state can misemploy that for their citizenry. The leaders have their hearts set on being businessmen, pushing through a dystopian reality that will have no scope for humanity in it.
Some nations are eager to concoct plots with religious bigotry sitting trigger-happy on a stockpile of nuclear weapons, rather than working on subjects like sustainable development, humanity or climate change.
Alliance Française de Dhaka (AFD) organises a solo art exhibition titled ‘Code of Conduct’ by Mohammad Hasanur Rahman (Riaz) at its La Galerie in the city’s Dhanmondi area. The Inaugural ceremony of the exhibition was held on December 19.
Cultural Affairs Minister Asaduzzaman Noor MP was present as the chief guest while Liaquat Ali Lucky, Director General of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy (BSA) also attended the programme as the special guest on the occasion. Enthekhabul Hamid Apu, Managing Director of Hamid Group, also attended the opening ceremony as the guest of honor.
The exhibition imparts sensitivity about emotion and empathy that we need in order to establish equality and equity. The term had imbued the artist with passion and force that he tried to channel into his artworks.'
The exhibition will continue till January 2, 2018. n
