Abhivyakti Edition 2
With an inspiring first edition in its wake, Abhivyakti is all set to return in summer of 2019, with an array of arts and artistic experiences, drawn from diverse cultures and art forms. Driven by an unwavering vision of expanding depth and breadth of cultural life, we continue to embrace creativity, and giving audiences, new ways of seeing the world.
This year, curators of Abhivyakti call for proposals that are on the cusp of these possibilities. On one hand we hope to receive proposals that are reflective and ponder the times we live in, and in the same breath we want these proposals to have innocence, depth of the timeless and wondrous idea of art. We invite proposals that are fearful of what they want to say, even anxious, but at the same time have power to initiate dialogues with those who care to unsettle the settled and to bring solace to the troubled.

AN UNPARALLELED VISION
Imagining and communicating are two faces of our existence. Duality of the present and timeless prevails at all times. The world is in flux, ever changing, new contours of values and meanings get written even before old ones are forgotten. And yet more it changes – it remains the same. It remains constant, coagulant flux with everchanging contours but of the same matter. Art provides society with a mirror it requires to reassess reflection of our times and beyond.
This year, curators of Abhivyakti edition 2 will bring forth arts that are on the cusp of these possibilities – They will present expressions that are reflective and ponder on the times we live in, but at the same time maintaining the innocence, depth and the wonder of the basic idea that formed these expressions. We have invited proposals which are fearful of what they want to say, even anxious, but at the same time have power to initiate dialogues with those who care to unsettle the settled and to bring solace to the troubled.
