A 10-day long print art exhibition featuring works by noted Japanese artist Toshihiko Ikeda was inaugurated in Dhaka on April 20.

The solo exhibition, titled “Line of Ages”, is being held at the National Art Gallery of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy in Segunbagicha. It will continue until Monday, reports UNB.

The exhibition is jointly hosted by Cosmos Atelier-71 Studio and Shilpakala Academy. It was inaugurated by Shilpakala Academy Director General (DG) Liaquat Ali Lucky.

“Japan is really a good friend of Bangladesh. We have cultural relations,” said Lucky at the inaugural ceremony last Saturday.

He hoped that this relation would strengthen through increased cultural exchanges. 

The DG also mentioned Ikeda's works that were displayed in the 18th Asian Art Biennale Bangladesh in 2018, and invited him to join the 19th edition slated for 2020.

In his speech, artist Ikeda expressed his gratitude for the opportunity to connect with the people of Bangladesh. He also thanked Cosmos Atelier-71 Studio for their cooperation.
