The event features two Bangladeshi artists, both professors at the University of Dhaka.

Held in June, 2015, it showcased eight artists from Bangladesh and six from the National University of Arts and Culture, Yangon.
After the exhibition, the six Myanmar artists went to the University of Dhaka as part of an artistic and cultural exchange between the two countries.
