Our Collection

The Samdani Art Foundation Collection has 2,000 works of modern and contemporary art currently based at Golpo, the Samdani Family residence in Gulshan, Dhaka that can be visited by appointment. Works from the collection are regularly lent to institutions and festivals around the globe as part of SAF’s commitment to increasing international engagement with Bangladeshi and South Asian artists. A permanent home for the collection is currently in development: Srihatta – Samdani Art Centre and Sculpture Park will open in 2021, designed by Dhaka-based, Aga Khan award-winning architect Kashef Mahboob Chowdhury.
