Join us on a special exhibition tour featuring the work of Shahidul Alam, the renowned Bangladeshi photographer, writer, activist, and institution-builder.

Shahidul Alam: Truth to Power provides a nuanced view of Bangladesh and South Asia to underscore the importance of self-representation, empowerment, and truth as embodied in Alam’s life and work.

Learn how Alam’s role as a changemaker empowers a country and cultures often misrepresented.
