This biennial in India is an inspiration for art initiatives throughout the world, especially for countries where budgets are tight and technological possibilities require a lot of ‘out of the box thinking’.

What: Second Kochi-Muziris Biennale Whorled Explorations (also on Facebook), on Google+, on Twitter and on Youtube)

When: December 12, 2014–March 29, 2015

Where: Kochi, Muziris and surrounding islands, Kerala, India.  The shows are held in existing galleries and halls, and site-specific installations in public spaces, heritage buildings and disused structures.

From the Curatorial Note: “Whorled Explorations is conceived as a temporary observation deck hoisted at Kochi. The exhibition draws upon a wide glossary of signs from this legendary maritime gateway to bring together sensory and conceptual propositions that map our world referencing history, geography, cosmology, time, space, dreams and myths.”

The Kochi Biennale Foundation (KBF) is a non-profit charitable trust engaged in promoting art & culture and educational activities in India; primary amongst them the hosting of the Kochi-Muziris Biennale. KBF works around the year to strengthen contemporary art infrastructure and to broaden public access to art across India.

The Kochi Biennale Foundation is also engaged in the conservation of heritage properties and monuments and the upliftment of traditional forms of art and culture.

KBF was founded in 2010 by artists Bose Krishnamachari and Riyas Komu.
