Rana Begum Curates the Arts Council Collection 

Rana Begum is guest curator of a new exhibition from the Arts Council Collection as part of the National Partners Programme. Born in Sylhet, Bangladesh, in 1977 and now living in London where she studied at Chelsea College of Art and Design and the Slade School, Begum has established an international practice creating immaculately conceived and constructed abstract installations, which challenge the distinction between two and three-dimensional practice, sculpture and painting. With an exceptional understanding of composition, form and colour, Begum will curate a unique selection from the 8,000 works held in the Arts Council Collection alongside work by exciting young artists active in the UK.
