Press Releases - The Guild

The Guild is pleased to present Barbed Floss a group exhibition of new works and explorations by artists Tayeba Begum Lipi, Mahbubur Rahman, Promotesh Das Pulak, Molla Sagar, and Anisuzzaman Sohel.

Curated by Veeranganakumari Solanki, the works in this exhibition ‘are homage to the resonating hollow cry beyond politics, beyond countries, beyond continents; across borders and over wires into freedom, peace and harmony to floss homes, families, oceans, fields, land and skies.’ The exhibition marks the first time these artists are showing together under this conceptual framework in Mumbai and offers the opportunity to engage with personal and political narratives of the issues of borders, exchange, displacement and relationships with regard to the geopolitics at play between neighbouring countries.
