Dr. Iftekhar Ahmed Chowdhury, Honourable Advisor of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Government of the People\'s Republic of Bangladesh, will be present as Chief Guest and will inaugurate the exhibition. Mr. Duncan Norman, Deputy British High Commissioner to Bangladesh and Mr. Abedur Rahman Sikder, Head of Marketing & Corporate Affairs of BRAC Bank, will be present as special guests.

During Henry Moore's print exhibition in Bangladesh in December 2006, art-lovers expressed great interest in seeing more of contemporary British sculpture. This led us to commission the Visual Arts Department of the British Council in London to curate a small touring exhibition drawn from their own collection. 'Long Distance Information' tells the story of how British sculpture evolved in the 20th century keeping pace with time and globalisation and the extraordinary energy and enthusiasm it found in new forms of expression. We hope this exhibition will stimulate interest and discussion among those who visit, and that a greater understanding of contemporary sculpture is achieved.

Long Distance Information

This exhibition traces the way in which British sculptors throughout the 20th century have sought new means through which to express themselves and the world around them. The accelerating pace of change, globalisation, the increasing flow of people and ideas into and out of Britain has all contributed to a rapidly altering landscape.
