Biographical Text

Tayeba Begum Lipi makes paintings, prints, installations, and videos. Lipi cofounded the Britto Arts Trust, Bangladesh’s first artist-run alternative arts platform, which has extended its reach beyond Bangladesh through exhibitions, residencies, talks, collaborations, and exchanges. Her 2012 work Love Bed, acquired for the Guggenheim’s collection, addresses themes of female identity, and references the double bind of political and gender-specific violence. Lipi was awarded the Grand Prize at the Asian Art Biennial, Dhaka, in 2004, and was the commissioner for the Bangladesh Pavilion at the 54th Venice Biennale (2011). She has had solo exhibitions at Alliance Française (1998 and 2004) and Bengal Gallery (2007) in Dhaka. Notable group exhibitions include the Venice Biennale (2011) and Colombo Art Biennial (2012). Lipi lives and works in Dhaka.
