If you?re aching for an escape from the somber hues of winter, the dazzling pop-color brights of the contemporary artwork at India?s Kochi-Muziris Biennale exhibition will instantly lift you out of your seasonal haze. Held in Kochi, Kerala, the show is a collection of the works of talented artists from around the globe.
The event?s various venues set it apart from other international art festivals?instead of being confined to a single space, the exhibition is spread out across Kochi, Muziris, and other Indian islands. Kochi-Muziris Biennale exhibitions have been installed in galleries, halls, gardens and museums, while site-specific works of art brighten historic buildings, public spaces, and abandoned buildings. The show?s pieces encompass a variety of rich artistic mediums, such as film, large-scale installation, painting, performance art, sculpture, and new media. Biennale is the ultimate blend of the old and the new, as it encourages artists to immerse their contemporary artwork in many of India?s most ancient venues, fostering a tangible connection between past and present.
