The ongoing Dhaka Art Summit has been designed with an array of diverse programmes along with the exhibition of the works by 300 artists from Bangladesh, Thailand, Malaysia, Madagascar, the Philippines and several other countries.

Today, on the fourth day, Dhaka Art Summit will shed light on several highlighting programmes, such as discussion event on ‘Four Generations of Female Artists in Bangladesh’, launching of book on master artist Zainul Abedin and screening of the documentary film ‘Legend of the Loom’.

The discussion event ‘Four Generations of Female Artists in Bangladesh’ will be held from 2pm to 3:30pm at the main auditorium of National Art Gallery of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy in Segun Bagicha of the capital. The discussion panel will bring together artists and art historians to discuss the artistic contributions and legacy of figures such as Novera Ahmed (via the scholarship of Rezaul Karim Sumon), Kanak Chanpa Chakma, Rokeya Sultana and Farzana Ahmed Urmi and the discussion will be moderated by Joya Shahrin Huq.

On the other hand, the screening of Legend of the Loom’ will be held from 7 pm to 8 pm at the same venue. The groundbreaking documentary, produced by Drik, through the research of Saiful Islam, covers the story of muslin cloths, taking the viewer towards a breathtaking 2000-year-old journey: from the pages of the Mahabharata where this unique fabric was first mentioned, the rivers of Bengal where the plant grew, its loyal clientele and the eventual extinction of the craft.

Moreover, two books titled ‘Master Artists of Bangladesh-Zainul Abedin’ and ‘History of the Portuguese in Bengal’ by J.J.A Campos will also be launched at the BMW lounge at National Art Gallery of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy. The launching ceremony of ‘Master Artists of Bangladesh-Zainul Abedin’ will be held from 5pm to 6pm where Cultural Affairs Minister Asaduzzaman Noor and Director General of the Bangladesh National Museum Faizul Latif Chowdhury will be present. On the other hand, Cultural Affairs Minister Asaduzzaman Noor will also attend the launching programmes of the ‘History of the Portuguese in Bengal’ by J.J.A Campos, which is scheduled to be held between 7pm and 8pm.

‘Master Artists of Bangladesh - Zainul Abedin’ contains a series of essays and images of the works of pioneer modern Bangladeshi artist Zainul Abedin from the collection of Bangladesh National Museum.

Beginning on February 2, the fourth edition of the Dhaka Art Summit will continue till February 10.
