“On Friday night Bengal Foundation’s fourth arts venue in Dhaka,’Daily Star-Bengal Arts Precinct’ was jointly launched by Sir Fazle Hasan Abed, Founder and Chairperson of BRAC and Dr. Anisuzzaman, Professor Emeritus University of Dhaka who also spoke on the occasion. Mahfuz Anam, Editor and Publisher of The Daily Star Newspaper, Abul Khair, Chairman of Bengal Foundation, Luva Nahid Choudhury, Director-General of Bengal Foundation and Sadia Rahman, Deputy Director of Bengal Foundation also shared their thoughts during the ceremony.
In celebration of the event, Bengal Foundation organised a special exhibition of selected works by Sheikh Mohammed Sultan, from the private collection of Abul Khair, for which a commemorative catalogue has also been produced.
At this new site, Bengal Foundation looks forward to broadening and deepening the scope of its cultural endeavours in ways that complement and extend the work of the Foundation’s other arts facilities in Dhaka: Bengal Gallery, Bengal Art Lounge and Safiuddin Bengal Printmaking Studio. With this in view, Bengal Foundation has conceived of the Arts Precinct as a non-commercial arts venue, which will operate purely for the public benefit.”
