Thami Mnyele Foundation alumni Razia Barsati (Suriname), will take part in The Great Suriname exhibition in the Nieuwe Kerk Amsterdam, 5 October 2019 - 2 February 2020.
"Razia Barsatie plays an important role in the Surinamese art world, her work and approach to teaching marks that of a new generation. Paintings of the faya lobie, djompo voetoe and the spectacular inlands are an important part of the Surinamese cultural expression. Alongside are those artists such as Razia Barsatie who touch upon the understanding of their culture, their history and the entrenched prejudices that are still aspects of daily life."
The Great Suriname Exhibition tells the fascinating story of the country and its inhabitants, a community of people from different backgrounds. The exhibition covers the entire cultural history of Suriname, from the earliest settlements to the independent republic it is today.
