Dhaka, July 26 (UNB) - A three-day performance art, an important part of New Media art practice, titled ‘Shilper Shohor’ began in the city on Thursday.

Director General of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy (BSA) Liaquat Ali Lucky inaugurated the art event in the morning.

A total of 16 artistes from Bangladesh are performing in different places of the city.

‘Shilper Shohor’ is shedding light on the city of Dhaka and its 400-year glorious history together with the prominent culture of Bangladesh.

The initiative planned by Liaquat Ali is taking place to revisit the glorious heritage of Dhaka, and to stir up the artistic conscience among the megacity dwellers.

Different activities, including renditions by Baul singers and cultural performances by child artistes, are being held at various places in the capital.

The event is going to be the main theme of the upcoming 18th Asian Art Biennale Bangladesh (AABB) scheduled to be held in September in Dhaka for the very first time.
