Weekend In Black & White : 11 # Kala Ghoda Arts Festival 2015 #1 - Porosity / Happy Valentine's Day

The Kala Ghoda Arts Festival in Mumbai is the second largest arts festival in the world after the Edinburgh Arts Festival. The theme for this year's festival is SPARSH, or touch, symbolic of the deep connection it enjoys with Mumbai. The arts touch the soul and satisfy the primal human need for inspiration, sparking change and hope.
Tourists from all over the world plan their trip to Mumbai to witness the Kala Ghoda Festival. The festival, now in its 17th year, is a community celebration of the arts within one of the most beautiful precincts of Mumbai, the Kala Ghoda Art District.

The festival is an interesting kaleidoscope of Visual Arts, Urban Design & Architecture, Dance, Music, Theatre, Cinema, Literature, Food, Street Acts and Workshops for children and adults. There are 450 events held over 9 days across several locations in the Kala Ghoda Arts District.

I visited the festival for half a day but managed to capture only the Visual Arts Festival on my camera and noted down the details of the arts. The Festival is being covered by media, professional photographers of the city and amateurs too. I hope I can do justice to the Visual Arts Festival through my photos.

Variable porosity in this pavilion is an inspiration from nature. It is very evidently seen in many aspects in nature including the bone as they have more material at places where required and less where it does not have structural / functional need.

  1. That sculpture is quite eye catching. Happy Valentine's Day to you.

  2. The sculpture is certainly reminiscent of bone. A great shape, and you've captured it well.

  3. Lovely b&w photo, well composed!
