Art can set us free: Asaduzzaman Noor

Art can set us free: Asaduzzaman Noor

Former cultural affairs minister Asaduzzaman Noor has urged parents to motivate their children to explore art, culture and history.

“We need to provide them (students) opportunities like this event where people can learn about their talents,” he said at the opening of a three-day art exhibition at Zainul Gallery of the Faculty of Fine Arts at Dhaka University (DU) on Saturday.

Eminent cartoonist Prof Rafiqun Nabi, DU Fine Art Faculty Dean Prof Nisar Hossain, UNDP Bangladesh Country Director Sudipto Mukherjee, JICA Country Programme Coordinator Naoki Matsumura and Astrotex Group Director Tahmina Tanji attended the event as special guests.

“I didn’t even imagine that it’d be this amazing,” Nabi said. “This exhibition can surely be considered a bridge between the rural and urban artists.”

Prof Nisar said that such exhibitions are necessary to “create a breathing space” in our society.

Advisor of Art Festival 2019 Gazipur and Additional Secretary of the Disaster Management and Relief Ministry Md Mohsin presided over the programme. He praised the initiative and asked UNDP and JICA to continue their supportive collaborations.

He and other guests also thanked the attending scouts, who represented the Bhawal Mirzapur Haji Jamir Uddin School and College, Gazipur.

Artworks from ‘Art Festival 2019 Gazipur’, held on March 27-30 at Bhawal Mirzapur Haji Jamir Uddin School and College, were displayed at the event.

The exhibition was open to all every day from 11am to 8pm till yesterday.
