The country's premier printmaking studio, Cosmos-Atelier71, was formally re-launched on September 4 after renovation works, in an effort to make it an international standard art studio.
It was inaugurated by Cultural Affairs Minister Asaduzzaman Noor, who was the programme's chief guest, while special guests included observers of the ongoing 18th Asian Art Biennale, Professor Emeritus Tetsuya Noda and Dr Marek Bartelik, famed artists Jogen Chowdhury, Kalidas Karmakar, Bishwajit Goswami and Chairman of Cosmos-Atelier71 Enayetullah Khan.
Chairman of Cosmos-Atelier71 Enayetullah Khan welcomed the foreign dignitaries from the Asian Art Biennale and thanked everyone for attending the inauguration ceremony of the studio.
He said that the studio is an excellent place to collaborate and share knowledge among artists.
Asaduzzaman Noor thanked everyone for making this event a success and wished to see quality outputs from the studio in the next Biennale.
Artist Jogen Chowdhury thanked Enayetullah Khan and those behind Cosmos-Atelier71 for setting up a studio aiming to elevate the passion of artists rather than keeping it for commercial purposes.
Biennale observer and Professor Emeritus of Tokyo University Tetsuya Noda previously only heard about the studio but was amazed to see it for the first time in person.
Fellow observer and art critic Dr Marek Bartelik said that the studio will remain as a standout achievement for printmaking in Bangladesh in the years to come. Celebrated artist Bishwajit Goswami was in charge of renovating and revamping Cosmos-Atelier71 studio.
