    Choloman presents an in progress snapshot of Monica Jahan Bose’s ongoing Storytelling with Saris collaborative art project, addressing climate change and its impact on women, food, and our environment through saris, film, and performance. The word “choloman” in Bangla means ongoing, moving, or continuous and is especially used to refer to films that are running. Monica has worked for more than a decade with women farmers from her ancestral village in Katakhali, Barobaishdia Island, Patuakhali District along with residents of her home in Washington DC and others around the world.

    “চলমান” প্রদর্শনীতে শিল্পী মনিকা জাহান বোস তুলে ধরেছেন শাড়ি, চলচিত্র এবং কৃতকলার মাধ্যমে তাঁর দীর্ঘমেয়াদী প্রকল্প “শাড়ির মধ্যে জীবনগাথা”। এই চলমান প্রকল্পে তিনি কাজ করছেন জলবায়ু পরিবর্তন এবং নারী, খাদ্য ও পরিবেশের উপরে এর বিরূপ প্রভাব নিয়ে। তিনি এক দশক ধরে তার মায়ের গ্রাম (কাটাখালী গ্রাম, বড়বাইশদিয়া দ্বীপ, পটুয়াখালী জেলা), আমেরিকা এবং ইউরোপে বসবাসরত নারীদের যৌথ সহযোগিতায় জলবায়ু পরিবর্তন সম্পর্কিত চিত্র, লেখা, এবং আলোচনা দিয়ে শিল্প করেছেন| “চলমান” শব্দটির বাংলা প্রচলিত সমার্থক অর্থ হল, অগ্রসরমান, অনবরত, অবিরাম, নিরন্তর ইত্যাদি, বিশেষ করে যা ব্যবহৃত হয় চলমান চলচিত্রের ক্ষেত্রে।

    Washington Post Review

    Nourish: Storytelling with Saris is an installation of video, drawings, poems, saris, and kanthas inspired by plants and herbs. Touching the soil and growing food are grounding and nourishing. For the last two years, Bangladeshi-American artist Monica Jahan Bose and DC participants in her Storytelling with Saris project have been connecting with the soil and Earth and food justice issues by nurturing plants on windowsills and planting neighborhood vegetable gardens. This year they planted and harvested in the garden at The Nicholson Project. Bose led a series of planting workshops that included poetry and art inspired by soil and plants. Using performance, sari art, writing, and film, Storytelling with Saris, which commenced in 2012, links DC residents with Bangladeshi coastal women farmers in solidarity to address climate and food injustice.

    Through our artwork, we are calling on GE to end its greenwashing – claiming to be green while backing massive fossil gas projects – and instead back clean renewable energy in Bangladesh.

    Presented by @Climarte and commissioned by @Market Forces, the exhibition will run from 1-4 August at the Point Gallery at @CambridgeFoundry in Boston – right around the corner from GE’s new headquarters.

    Location: Dhaka Art Summit, Shilpala Academy Auditorium, Dhaka, Bangladesh
    Date/time: February 9, 2023 at 6:30 pm

    The film follows a climate justice art project from Washington DC’s low-income Anacostia neighborhood to Barobaishdia, a remote Bangladeshi island on the frontlines of climate change. Bangladeshi-American artist Monica Jahan Bose leads a dozen women farmers and over 200 Washingtonians to co-create 65 climate-themed saris, which wrap five Washington buildings. While they work on the saris, the participants recite poetry, sing, and dance, creating a trans-border community.

    দুটি নারী পরিবেশ এবং লিঙ্গ নিয়ে একটি সংলাপ তৈরি করে পানি, দেহ ও বারোবাইশদিয়া দ্বীপের নারী কৃষকদের ছাপানো শাড়ি দিয়ে। প্রীমা: “শাড়ি নারীর কথা বলে| নারী শাড়ি ধারণ করে | নারী শাড়ি ও জল প্রকৃতির অংশ এবং প্রকৃতি আমাদের জীবনের সমন্বয় সাধন করে | কৃতকলাটি প্রকৃতির মুক্তির স্বাদ অনুসন্ধান করে ঢাকার একটি জনবহুল স্থানে।” মনিকা: “নারীরা দীর্ঘ দূরত্বে পানি বহন করে ।জলবায়ু পরিবর্তন, বন্যা এবং ঘূর্ণিঝড়ের প্রভাবে নারীরা ক্ষতিগ্রস্থ হয়।কৃতকলাটি নারী সংহতি প্রকাশ করে।” গ্রামীণ ও শহরের নারীদেরকে শাড়ির নদীতে সংযুক্ত করে চারুকলা থেকে জাতীয় জাদুঘরের পথে নামা হবে। সবাইকে যোগ দেওয়ার জন্য আমন্ত্রণ ।
    Two women weave an ecofeminist performance and dialogue using the body, water, and saris created with women farmers of Barobaishdia Island. Preema: “The sari represents women. Women, saris, and water are part of nature. The performance explores these ideas in a crowded public space in Dhaka." Monica: “Women are burdened with carrying water long distances and suffer the brunt of the impacts of climate change, floods, and cyclones. The piece speaks to women’s solidarity.” The performance links rural and urban women in a river of saris moving from Dhaka University to the National Museum and onwards, with the public invited to join along the way.

    Curated by: Vasia Deliyianni

    FOOTPRINT-APOTIPOMA is a collective response to climate change and migration. Climate change and conflict are destroying people's homes and homelands, leading to migration of people across borders. Using saris from Bangladesh covered in writing and images by Bangladeshis, Americans, and Europeans, Bose creates an interior space or dwelling within the gallery, speaking to the idea of shelter, safety, and working together to address a global problem. Her works on paper address the disruption of nature by climate change, using a combination of printmaking, painting, and words in many languages. Bose will organize multiple workshops and a performance and will collaborate with refugee women in Athens. Please join the interactive performance on July 18.

    The exhibition is organized by the Mayor's office of Athens and is supported in part by Sister Cities Grant from the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, which is supported by the National Endowment on the Arts. It will be held as part of Athens' designation at World Book Capital 2018.

  • Weather the Storm

    Weather the Storm

    Civilian Art Projects, 4718 14th Street NW, Washington, DC 20011
    Dates: March 31- April 21, 2018
    Opening reception: Saturday, March 31 @ 7-9 pm
    Sari workshop and sing-a-long, April 14 @ 3 pm
    Closing and artist's talk: Saturday, April 21 @ 3 pm
    Gallery hours:12-6pm Saturday, and by appointment info@civilianartprojects.com

    Weather the Storm centers on a series of performances and climate art actions that Monica Jahan Bose has led since November 2016, presenting new paintings, video, prints and saris. The title of the show derives from a Bengali song that the artist has been singing in her performances, lines from which appear in her paintings. She has taken Tagore’s "Kharobayu Boye Bege (Storm Winds Are Blowing)" and replaced “O boatman” with “O Woman” to create a feminist song about working together to row a boat to shore during a storm. Over several years, she has collaborated with homeless women from Calvary Women’s Services in Anacostia as well as women from One Billion Rising, a global platform to end violence against women, and the women of her ancestral village, Katakhali Village, Barobaishdia Island, Bangladesh. Bose’s performances, paintings, videos, works on paper, and saris explore themes of empowerment, environment, mythology, and community.

    A Bangladeshi-American artist and lawyer who has lived in seven countries, Bose uses Bengali and English text and women’s writing as integral elements in her work, highlighting multilingualism and women’s agency and literacy. Bose has long used the sari — 18 feet of unstitched handwoven fabric — to represent women’s lives, both in her paintings and her ongoing social practice project Storytelling with Saris.

    She has started using the coconut as a symbol of climate resilience. Each of her recent performances about climate change — in Miami, Washington DC, Honolulu, Paris, and Katakhali Village, Bangladesh — involved months of planning to create a woman-centered community, which comes together to collect dozens of coconuts to build a raft, sew saris together to make a massive sari, write carbon reduction pledges on saris, or grow and plant a coconut tree.

    Image: Storm Winds Are Blowing, 2018, 35 x 51 in.

    The exhibition is accompanied by a new publication, Rising Up to Climate Change: Storytelling with Saris, and is funded in part by a grant from the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, which is supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.

  • Ornate/Activate @ Villa Terrace Museum

    Ornate/Activate @ Villa Terrace Museum

    Location: Villa Terrace Decorative Arts Museum, Milwaukee, WI
    February 16, 2017 - May 14, 2017
    Talk by Monica Jahan Bose on February 16, 2017.

    Ornate/Activate examines the use of decorative arts and motifs, architectural elements, scripts, traditional materials, and other forms of pattern-making by artists of South Asian origin to create meaningful and critical content. The exhibition, organized by the South Asian Women’s Creative Collective (SAWCC) and curated by Alexander Campos, addresses themes such as inequality stemming from the global economy, loss of language and culture, gender violence, discrimination, segregation, and issues of equality and identity. The artists in Ornate/Activate recognize a need to reclaim tactile and decorative methods of making as a way to address social, political, and economic issues and also to confront the ever-growing presence of technology in everyday life.

    Exhibiting Artists:
    Nida Abidi, Fariba Alam, Kamal Badhey, Shelly Bahl, Marcy Chevali, Priyanka Dasgupta, Roya Farassat, Asha Ganpat, Parisa Ghaderi, Zainab Hussain, Monica Jahan Bose, Vandana Jain, Umber Majeed, Radhika Mathews, Indrani Nayar-Gall, Nirmal Raja, Sausan Saulat, Suran Song, Udita Upadhyaya.

  • AddaArt Public Performance

    AddaArt Public Performance

    Address: Ave C Plaza, Kensington, Brooklyn, NY
    Time: July 16, 2016, 4:30 to 7:30 pm

    Arts & Democracy presents AddaArt, a workshop, oral history project, and performance initiated by artist/activist Monica Jahan Bose in collaboration with the Bangladeshi immigrant community in Kensington, Brooklyn.  The project is bilingual, in Bengali and English.  The project team includes project coordinator Hasiba Haq and cultural organizers Caron Atlas and Michelle Proffit. 

    “Adda" is the Bengali word for intense conversation - both intellectual and personal - often carried out in public places and accompanied by tea and snacks.  The Oxford English Dictionary defines “adda” as “a place where people gather for conversation.”  Adda has usually been the privilege of men, while women and girls are relegated to the domestic sphere in South Asia and its diaspora. Adda and Art come together in AddaArt, to highlight the rich art and stories of the community.
