Over the past five years, one of St+art India Foundation’s primary missions has been to transform urban spaces into public art districts to create art accessible to everyone. Using key elements that are characteristic to the cultural fabric of urban cities, these art districts explore the contemporary face of India.
Owing to Panjim’s rich history and pedestrian friendly landscape, the city presents a perfect location to be transformed into an art district. Since 2017, artists from over 8 nationalities have worked in the city to transform mundane walls into canvases for urban contemporary art.
This edition in 2019, will cement and establish Panjim as India’s fourth art district – after Lodhi in Delhi, Maqta in Hyderabad and Mahim (E) in Mumbai. Artists across creative approaches will further explore the unique characteristics from the city. While at the same time, new territories will be explored with community driven projects in Talegaon to encourage active participation from the locals.
Participating Artists: Twoone (Japan), Ricky Lee Gordon (South Africa), Ella & Pitr (France), Osheen Siva (India), Svabhu Kohli (India), A-Kill (India), Hanif Kureshi (India) in collaboration with Dr.Jyotindra Jain (India)
