Ithink the biennale is good for the artists and for the students of art. The students study on the various aspects of world art, now they get a chance to see it. The event also allows them to interact with the esteemed artists who will be here. Yes, I’m aware of the controversies about the event and its politics. I’m not interested in it. As a practising artist I look at the biennale only from the perspective of art. Nine students from The RLV College of Music and Fine Arts will be part of a project at the biennale. And in January the post-graduate students of the college will present a show, curated by me, that will showcase the cultural face of Tripunithura to the visiting art world.
