Chobi mela IX Fellows
First time in its feature, Chobi Mela IX is partly commissioning ten Bangladeshi artists as Chobi Mela Fellow to produce site-specific artworks for the festival. To investigate the theme Transition, artists from different backgrounds of painting, drawing, animation, sculpture, photography, video, sound and installations will expand the possibilities of the medium and test the language of manifestations. These independent projects will be nurtured for six months through constant dialogue and guidance from the team of festival curators led by Mahbubur Rahman. Through this initiative, Chobi Mela aims to support new media artists of Bangladesh to develop their independent projects entailing experimentation and expansion.
