Going beyond canvas

New set

The Collection — UB City and Sublime Galleria in association with the Prestige Group are presenting ‘Art Bengaluru 2015’, from August 21 to 30.

     The sixth edition of ‘Art Bengaluru’ aims to go beyond the canvas, celebrating art in its myriad forms.The theme for this year’s festival is ‘Paradigm Shift’.

In keeping with this theme, ‘Art Bengaluru 2015’ hopes to promote a discovery of the arts from a change-inducing standpoint. Traditionally art was symbolised by paintings, classical sculpture and so on. However, over the years, the very concept of ‘art’ has undergone a sea change.

     With technological advancements, there is a new set of art forms – interactive and immersive installations, among others. This year will witness a global festival, celebrating national and international artists. There will be over 35 exhibits showcasing sculptures, installations, paintings and photography. There will also be a curated video lounge as well as a photography wall.

      This year, the show is being curated by Suresh Jayaram. An artist, art historian, arts administrator and curator of national repute, he is a well-known name in the art world.
There will also be curated walks by Jayaram, as well as trained art guides, to give visitors an in-depth and holistic understanding of the festival and the artworks on display.
