Ten Days of Celebrating the Hills of Pune
Pune Biennale, MOHOR, is a grass-roots movement that aims at promoting and showcasing creative talent from various disciplines of arts, design and architecture. The emphasis in Pune Biennale is on making art more public and accessible in various forms including painting, sculpture, design, film, architecture, photography, environmental activities, new media and performing arts. This event aspires to position the city on the map of art world.
The theme of the Pune Biennale is “Celebrating Hills of Pune” as they represent significant public spaces in the city. The hills in and around the city have given it a distinct geographical and cultural identity and at Pune Biennale we intend to revisit this through different forms of arts.
Several art exhibitions, workshops, art appreciation lectures and public art installations are planned at Parvati, Chaturshringi, Taljai, P.L. Deshpande garden, Balgandharv art gallery, Ghole Road Art Gallery, and Aba Bagul Art Gallery and garden.
The Pune Biennale is a ten-day event beginning on 11th January 2013 and closing on 21st January 2013. The Inaugural function is to be held at BalGandharv Auditorium and Art Gallery, at 5 :00 pm tomorrow, and the Chief guest of the function is Mr Subhash Avchat, also presiding over the inauguration will be Hon. Minister. Patangraoji Kadam.
