On Sunday, April 10th at Venkatappa Art Gallery

VAG Forum cordially invites you to participate in the Karnataka World Café on Sunday, 10th April at Venkatappa Art Gallery “to formulate a ‘Vision for Venkatappa Art Gallery”. The decision by the Government of Karnataka in signing away Venkatappa Art Gallery and several other cultural places in adoption to private entities, has created an urgent need to evaluate the idea of a public space, its form and function and the importance of keeping it away from private control. Venkatappa Art Gallery, a Government administered Public art space, housing historical collections of artists’ works as well as showcasing contemporary art through temporary shows, is one such. In this time of resistance and debate, it is also important to formulate a ‘Vision for Venkatappa Art Gallery’ that would help to make this a more dynamic and happening place for artists as well as the public. We need to understand and propose structures and models that would work for VAG. Along with members of the art community, we need the experience and ideas of other practitioners and experts such as Architects, Museologists, Archivists, Bureaucrats, Administrators and all those who have an interest in culture and a concern for Public spaces. With great pleasure we invite you to the Karnataka World Café being organized to evolve a ‘Vision for Venkatappa Art Gallery’ on Sunday, 10th April at Venkatappa Art Gallery. ‘World Cafe’ is a structured format where a large group of people can arrive at a collective vision for a topic of mutual interest through smaller, open and intimate conversation and brainstorming of ideas.
