Connecting people through Art!
New Delhi, Feb 22 (UNI) Art is about connecting people. A real connection between countries through the medium of art will be on show tomorrow as 30 visual artists from different parts of the world descend on the capital tomorrow to share their "common experiences" with their Indian counterparts.
The artists will be participating in 'Curiosity', an art show that aims to bring people from around the world closer by highlighting, through their different art works, commonalities between different native cultures.
Being organised by the US-based international arts organisation, 'ArtsAid', Curiosity, to be inaugurated by Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit, is an arts show that highlights the artists' native cultures as much as themselves.
Talking about the show, which kicked off in Bangalore earlier this week and will reach Delhi tomorrow, Artsaid founder Mukesh Panika said,''this is a very exciting collaboration of diverse professionals of many nationalities who are commited to bring the world closer.'' ''It is an opportunity to connect with people from different parts of the world in one place and to share in their experiences with the Indian culture. At the same time there is a tremendous responsibility that lies in demonstrating that if one has the right intention, how uncomplicated and meaningful it can be for all of us to come together, regardless of background.
The objective of the organisation is to create both awareness and curiosity about the different cultures of the world through the works of art.
