Brihatta is a research-based young artist-run Art platform, with a strong focus on community development and collaboration. The project possesses a collective spirit that centers on the youth, and proposed to its participants to examine alternative understanding of their artistic practice. Artistic freedom is nurtured in this space, as one gains clarity of self, by engaging in creative dialogue and mentorship.
Bishwajit Goswami, who selected the group’s members from an extended circle of artist friends and art colleagues, founded Brihatta in 2017, in Dhaka. Core group members were selected to join the platform after an extensive open call in major districts of Bangladesh. This process has enabled Brihatta to become a multi-disciplinary platform.
