Art Ben­galuru needs no in­tro­duc­tion. What started in 2010 as an at­tempt to in­crease art aware­ness in the city has to­day grown into a much-awaited in­ter­na­tional art fes­ti­val that has carved a niche for Ben­galuru on the global art map.

The fourth edi­tion of Art Ben­galuru pre­sented by The Col­lec­tion, UB City in as­so­ci­a­tion with Sub­lime Gal­le­ria and Art Chut­ney will take place at The Col­lec­tion, UB City. It prom­ises to be a week-long ex­trav­a­ganza from Au­gust 16 to 23. Art Ben­galuru 2013 will bring to­gether the best art gal­leries from across In­dia as well as the rest of the world. With each pass­ing year, the event be­comes big­ger and bet­ter, and this year, we aim to show­case the works of over 100 in­ter­na­tional and national artists across 17 gal­leries on one com­mon plat­form. Some of the par­tic­i­pat­ing gal­leries in­clude Pro­gres­sive Art Gallery (Delhi), Ayyah

Art Gallery (Chen­nai), Dec­can Art Gallery (Hyderabad), Delhi Salon (Delhi), Gallery Splash (Delhi), among oth­ers. Ms. Uzma Ir­fan, Co-founder, Art Ben­galuru and Founder, Sub­lime Gal­le­ria said, “This year’s theme for the fes­ti­val is Re­flec­tions. The idea be­hind this is that all forms of art is a re­flec­tion of our be­ing and por­trays our emo­tions, be it joy, sor­row, tur­moil, anger etc. Art Ben­galuru 2013 will have all the usual trade­marks that have made it the land­mark event it is to­day—a grand Open­ing Night, artists and art gal­leries across In­dia and abroad un­der one roof, res­i­den­tial art con­claves and of course, the much-an­tic­i­pated Lux­ury Art Auc­tion as its cul­mi­na­tion.” The grand In­au­gu­ral Night will be on the 16th of Au­gust and will show­case an art form by cel­e­brated artist, Thota Thar­rani. Pad­mashri awardee, Sri Thar­rani is work­ing on this cen­tre-piece ex­clu­sively for this event, to por­tray the theme of Re­flec­tions. Mr. Thar­rani will also be present at the Open­ing Night of the fes­ti­val. The evening will also fea­ture Body Art Dancers as yet an­other re­in­force­ment of the theme. As in pre­vi­ous years, the who’s who of Ben­galuru will be present to show their sol­i­dar­ity to this func­tion. An­other ma­jor at­trac­tion in Art Ben­galuru 2013 will be the in­tro­duc­tion of Berserk, an art con­fer­ence to pro­mote and en­cour­age creative aware­ness among chil­dren.
