Int’l Public Art Symposium in city from Nov 1

Sunday, 28 October 2018 | PNS | BHUBANESWAR

In a bid to boost socio-cultural art in Odisha, the Artists Network Promoting Indian Culture (ANPIC) along with the Bhubaneswar Development Authority (BDA) is going organise India's 1st International Public Art Symposium (IPAS) at Kalinga Nagar here from November 1 to 20.

ANPIC managing trustee Sashanka Mohapatra informed this at a Press meet held here on Saturday.

Mohapatra said well-known artists from 15 countries, who are the participants of the Men’s Hockey World Cup, and 21 artists from across India would be attending and creating sculptures from waste materials, which would be permanently displayed at a Sculpture Museum provided by the BDA for the public.

The IPAS is India's first live sculpturing programme under the ANPIC’s 40-day event of the Odisha Triennial of International Art (OTIA) to be held in Odisha. After the live sculpturing, an open air sculpture museum would be inaugurated on theme 'Reduce, Reuse, Recycle', he said.

Mohapatra added that the art symposium would endeavour to make the nation aware about Odisha’s ecosystem for bringing about environmental as well as social changes.

BDA Additional Commissioner Bhawani Shankar Chaini said the theme “Reduce, reuse and recycle” of the symposium would not only make people conscious about the waste materials but would show how to make use of these materials.

Among others, JJ School of Arts Ad-Hoc Lecturer Rajendra A Patil, BDA Assistant Town Planner Suparna Surabhita Das and ANPIC curator Kshitish Das were present.
