Current Events


After the resounding success of the last edition, PUBLICA, the big city festival returns in 2016 in a bigger, more engaging and more international avatar. This year, the curatorial theme is 'Touch' and our intention is to deepen the viewer's engagement.
The theme of ‘Touch’, attempts to be quite flexible and intends to leave room for artists to use their imagination to activate an area. The artist could literally interpret the theme as one where he comments on the actual making of the works, the process involved, the absence or presence of his touch or could make works which are more about the viewer.
We will invite artists to come and work in India in an environment, which will be geared towards personal research and growth. The artists are expected to make site-specific works, responding to the local context, guided by the curatorial brief. The works will be placed in high traffic areas and the festival will be highly publicized.
