How are you all? I am high on posting blog posts this week 😛 I kid you not! I feel so energized this week and thought I should really put this to good use with some productive blogs. 😀
Anyhoo, you know we fill you in with what’s happening in the city most of the times! So we thought we should definitely talk about the art festival that is going to be held in the city – Art Bengaluru 2016
Art Bengaluru is South India’s leading contemporary Art Festival and 2016 marks its 7th year. Art Bengaluru, one of the most reputed Art Festivals in India, has been created to showcase a wide spectrum of art forms and provide a platform for artists (both Indian and International) to exhibit their work. Art Bengaluru is divided into four divisions – Art, Performance art, Workshops and Speaking Sessions. However, this year, they have added Cinema as well!
Art Bengaluru 2016 is set to commence on August 19, 2016 and ends on August 28, 2016. The best part about the art festival this time around is performances of Karsh Kale Collective on its opening night (19 August) followed by Wolfpack, Sivamani & Siraha Trio on 20th and 21st August. 🙂
There are number of workshops going to be conducted during these 10 days for photography, painting etc. There are cookout events being held as well so something the foodies can look forward to! *slurp* To know more about their schedule, you can either visit their website or download the Art Bengaluru app from the Google Playstore and the iOS app store.
This is just the first thing in the list of spectacular things Art Bengaluru 2016 has in store and promises for art lovers. So if want to rediscover art at its contemporary best, mark your calendars from 19th-28th August and don’t forget to visit UB City, Bangalore! 🙂
