Welcome to the 1st edition of Dhaka Art Summit. The recent economic and cultural boom in Asia has led to a significant growth in Asian Art. Chinese, Japanese, Korean & Indian artists have been in full bloom in the international art scene over the last 10 years. Presently, there has been a rise of the art scene in South Asian countries such as Nepal, Sri Lanka & Pakistan. Now we welcome you to the 1st edition of Dhaka Art Summit. Dhaka Art Summit is organized with a target of showcasing the vibrant art scene of Bangladesh. The 1st edition of the Summit is focused on the local artists and galleries only. In the future we plan to invite international artists and galleries to exhibit their works in the Summit along with the local galleries. The uniqueness of Dhaka Art Summit is that apart from the participation of Galleries, artists are also independently participating directly instead of being represented by galleries, giving them an opportunity to promote themselves. In the 1st edition, 19 local galleries and 220 artists are participating independently in the Summit. One of the major attractions during the Summit is the Samdani Art Award. 29 selected artists are participating in this competition. The Summit is also featuring various installations, performance art, and there is a dedicated video lounge and a two day Speakers Forum led by 19 world renowned curators, historians, critics, artists and collectors at the Summit Venue. As part of the Dhaka Art Summit, 3 major public curated exhibitions and several other exhibitions of modern and contemporary art in galleries and art spaces are taking place around the city. On behalf of the Summit Steering Committee and the organizer, Samdani Art Foundation and our partners Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy and Bangladesh National Museum, I would like to thank all the participating galleries, artists, sponsors and partners for their support. I believe this is a new journey for the Bangladeshi art and will be an unforgettable experience for all of us. We look forward to see you again in the 2nd edition of Dhaka Art Summit.
