Poornima Sukumar, Ajay Raghavan, Giulia Ambrogi, Janet Orlene
Murals, sculptures, installations – public art in all its diverse forms is deeply rooted in visualising the invisible by locating itself in everyday encounters. Public art also provides a physical and visual subversion to passerbys, encouraging them to look at the site of the installation through a new lens and learn beyond what is obviously visible. Through the years, many collectives have come up across the country helping street artists forge connections with cities and their various inhabitants through place-making projects.
Join speakers Poornima Sukumar, Ajay Raghavan and Giulia Ambrogi in conversation with Janet Orlene as they explore the role art collectives play in transforming cities and its residents through public art, how both the process and artworks serve to facilitate engagement in these spaces, and how they provide new access points to the art world.
