Ali Asgar is a Bangladeshi transdisciplinary artist who focuses on the relationship between body and space, gender and eroticism. Ali’s provocative street performances and gallery exhibitions exposed them to serious risk in Dhaka, and in 2016, they were awarded an Artist Protection Fund Fellowship at the University of Maine. Ali has exhibited at the Dhaka Arts Summit, the Kolata International Performance Festival and the Asian Art Biennial.
Their work has been produced in Boston, Chicago and New York City, where they were a featured artist at the PEN World Voice Festival.
