The Business Standard does a brief profile of Dhaka, Bangladesh based couple Nadia and Rajeeb Samdani:
Nadia grew up in a family of collectors and bought her first artwork at 22. And Rajeeb, who is fairly proud of never completing college, now owns a conglomerate called Golden Harvest Group, which has interests in Bangladesh and Dubai. He is also secretary general of the Bangladesh Human Rights Foundation. But in matters of art, he says Nadia is his inspiration. […] At Golpo, the artwork includes Picassos, Rembrandts and Tagores. And also Mithu Sen, Begum Tayeba Lipi, Lala Rukh and Raqs Media Collective.
Rajeeb also co-Chairs the South Asian Acquisition Committee at the Tate Museum for Modern Art:
There’s a school of thought that questions money from the sub-continent being spent on buying South Asian Contemporary Art but for a foreign museum. Rajeeb defends this saying, “South Asian art needs more exposure. Tate is the first international museum that has seriously looked at South Asian art. This gives the next generation of curators, academics and collectors access to the region. Within the region, this has led to collaboration.”
