On the second morning of the Dhaka Art Summit, the largest non-commercial art event in South Asia held from February 5-8, Bangladesh’s Parliament building saw what must have been the largest (and certainly best dressed) group of visitors in its history. Curators, artists, gallerists and journalists – probably 100 people in all – who had flown in from around the world for the summit, had come to see the interior of what is probably Bangladesh’s best-known monument, the magnum opus of the great Russian-American modernist architect Louis Kahn.
