Born in 1991, Ali Asgar is a Bangladeshi artist whose work focuses primarily on the body and space as the main element of their practice. Ali’s work surrounding gender, sexuality and social taboos often reflects upon their personal struggle with the conservative Bangladeshi attitude toward members of the LGBTQ community. They were awarded an Artist Protection Fund Fellowship in 2016 and are currently in residence at the University of Maine, where they continue to create politically-inspired projects that emphasize trauma, dislocation, isolation, body politics and queer identity.
