The Embassy of Bangladesh in Warsaw, Poland is presenting a two-month long painting exhibition titled Nodir Kule Kule at the Asia and Pacific Museum in Warsaw, which commenced on March 14. As a participating artist from Bangladesh, I had the opportunity to both display my work at the exhibition and attend the event as an observer. The exhibition boasts artworks by 65 noted Bangladeshi artists, including the likes of Kanak Chanpa Chakma, Rafiqun Nabi, Samarjit Roy Choudhury, Abdus Shakoor Shah, Nisar Hossain, Shishir Bhattacharya, Jamal Ahmed, Anisuzzaman, Farida Zaman, Moniruzzaman, Dulal Gain, Mohammad Iqbal, Shahjahan Bikash, Nipa, Bipasha Hayat and Laila Sharmeen, amongst others.
The Ambassador of Bangladesh in Warsaw, H. E. Mr Mahfuzur Rahman plays a major role in promoting Bangladeshi art and culture beyond the nation's borders, and this exhibition is much to his credit. It was also quite encouraging see Bangladesh's newly appointed State Minister at the Ministry of Cultural Affairs, Mr K M Khalid attending the opening ceremony of the exhibition to show his support. In the presence of hundreds of foreign delegates, diplomats and other distinguished guests, a vibrant cultural programme, comprising of dance, music and recitation, marked the opening of Nodir Kule Kule at the Asia and Pacific Museum.
Nodir Kule Kule will remain open for public viewing till May 19.
