Art Park Bangalore
Chief Guest : Smt.Arundhati Nag
will be present at 11:30 AM
The August edition will be Coordinated by K.Aiswaryan and A.Naveen Kumar
ArtPark is a cultural initiative launched by Bangalore-based contemporary artists. The main activity will be a monthly event on the first Sunday of every month at the Sculpture Garden (Shilpavana)
The first event in the series took place on 30 March 2014 involving 30 selected, eminent local artists who spent the whole day working at the venue so that interested members of the public could see, appreciate and understand artists’ varied methods of work and the artistic outcomes of their work. The day-long event will enable artists and the public to engage in critical conversations that can help lay people to develop a deeper understanding of art and artists across time, location and culture. In the process members of the public will be able to develop an awareness and appreciation of visual art, which can lead to a recognition of the power of creativity in constructing, defining and shaping knowledge.
The activities of Art Park Bangalore are meant to introduce the local public as well as tourists and other visitors to the city to the many art activities that regularly take place in Bangalore. An important purpose of the Art Park Bangalore initiative is to bridge the gap between visual art and the general public by providing a stimulating environment that provides the necessary exposure to contemporary visual art, fosters the creative spirit that exists in every individual, and challenges people to question themselves and find answers for themselves in contemporary art.
Art Park Bangalore has been conceived and designed as a cultural activity for the public, involving a range of artists in the city, including senior and well-known ones. This initiative is promoted by Samyojita Trust (®) with financial support from the Department of Kannada and Culture, Government of Karnataka.
This programme is artists’ initiative. It aims to bring together art loving public and the artists in a truly informal setting.
