Kiran Nadar Museum of Art invites you to
The Heritage Art
On 26th and 27th January 2019
In colloaboration with culture and archaelogical survey of india, knma has organized the art workshops at well known heritage sites and monuments.
Art is anything but ‘elitist’ and KNMA aims to bridge this gap between the art and general public through their various art interactive programs like these workshops at various heritage sites throughout the nation. The Heritage Art project will help raise awareness and foster interest for art in the public eye. The main purpose of conducting these workshops would be to sensitize the visitors towards Indian art and culture. To encourage everyone to join in, KNMA plans to organize the workshops on weekends. The Heritage Art project will begin with Delhi on January 26th & 27th at Qutab Minar and Humayun Tomb, respectively. The other cities include Lucknow, Bhopal, Guwahati, Dehradun and Shimla.
KNMA is plugging the lack of art promotion in the public sphere and is working towards encouraging art appreciation. KNMA aspires to become a place for confluence, through its curatorial initiative and exhibitions, school and college workshops, art appreciation discourses, symposiums and public programs. It is focused on bridging the gap between art and the public and fostering a museum-going culture in India. In order to activate the museum as a site for visual and intellectual dialogue, the museum aims to develop innovative programs that seek active collaborations from artists as well as the public.
