15th Asian Art Biennale Bangladesh 2012


Filipino visual artists are enjoined to participate in the 15th Asian Art Biennale Bangladesh 2012 from December 1 - 31, 2012.

Asian Art Biennale was conceived by the Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy with the assumption of continuity and change and the co-existence of modernity and tradition in the arts of Asian countries.

Artists in Asia have been influenced by this symbolizes of art and craft, and use elements of traditional art and craft as motifs even as they expose themselves to the modern trends in art and culture of the west. It is, therefore, not in a geographical sense that Asian art becomes meaningful and significant as a category; rather the ferment and flux in which it exists and the mutual accommodation with the west in which it thrives, give to Asian art a special identity.

Asian Art Biennale Bangladesh, since its beginning in 1981, has attempted to display the kaleidoscope of various artistic endeavours of our time in which continuity and change come together. The geographical parameter is important only in a generic sense and also for identification of sponsorship in this pioneering venture. It was inevitable that with time other regions that share, more or less, the same artistic impulses and face the same challenge of forging an identity of their own, would be included in the exhibition as has happened in recent years.

Asian Art Biennale is proud to showcase the artistic heritage and contemporary art in Asia.
