Radwan Mujib Siddiq, a grandson of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and trustee of Centre for Research and Information (CRI), made a surprise visit to Dhaka Art Summit at Bangladesh Shilpakal Academy on Sunday.
Radwan witnessed the exhibition titled 'Lighting the fire of freedom - Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman' on the ground floor of the National Art Gallery, said a CRI press release.
The exhibition was organised by the policy research organisation in association with Information and Communications Technology Division and Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy.
CRI Executive Director Sabbir Bin Sams said organisers of the art summit expressed their desire to keep one exhibition solely dedicated to the celebrations of the ‘Mujib Borsho’. “Then CRI extended all the assistance regarding design, picture and others. Another trustee of CRI Nasrul Hamid offered his consultancy on design and content.”
Like every year since 2012, Dhaka Art Summit, the biggest exhibition of artworks and paintings in South Asia, was also organised this year.
