Festival of Stories 2017
Art in Transit is a collaboration between the Srishti Institute of Art Design and Technology, and the Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation. Over the past year we have hosted bi-monthly public-arts festivals at the Cubbon Park Metro Station. Local, national and international artists have collaborated with the project bringing a fluidity of public art practice to Cubbon Park and Cubbon Park Metro Station in Bangalore.
Throughout its life at the Cubbon Park Metro station, the Art in Transit project has focused on learning and practice. Students and artists have created, erased and worked with residues, constantly layering the different sites with a diverse range of creative practices.
“As a project which stands at the intersection of public-art and education, our 7th festival opens up multiple avenues for creating, participating and learning. As artists, designers and pedagogues, we are committed to an open engagement where both the experience and its process are made public. Site is studio is stage and it is all transparent." - Amtabh Kumar (Team Co-Lead, AIT)
