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