PM Modi to Inaugurate First Indian Art, Architecture and Design Biennale at Red Fort

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to inaugurate the inaugural Indian Art, Architecture, and Design Biennale at Delhi’s Red Fort today. Alongside this event, the ‘Aatmanirbhar Bharat Centre for Design’ and the student biennale ‘Samunnati’ will also be inaugurated, as announced by the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO).

This landmark Indian Art, Architecture, and Design Biennale (IAADB) will mark the genesis of the Cultural Space in Delhi, serving as a pivotal introduction, stated the PMO.

Modi’s vision has been to establish and institutionalize a prominent global cultural initiative in the country, akin to renowned international biennales in Venice, Sao Paulo, Singapore, Sydney, and Sharjah, among others, as highlighted in the PMO statement.

In alignment with this vision, a nationwide campaign was launched to revitalize, redefine, renovate, and reinvigorate museums. Additionally, plans for the development of cultural spaces in five key cities—Kolkata, Delhi, Mumbai, Ahmedabad, and Varanasi—have been unveiled.

Scheduled from December 9 to 15, the IAADB follows significant initiatives like the International Museum Expo held in May and the Festival of Libraries in August. Its design aims to foster comprehensive conversations among artists, architects, designers, photographers, collectors, art professionals, and the general public, fostering a robust cultural discourse, as emphasized by the PMO statement.

Moreover, the biennale seeks to open doors for expanded collaboration and opportunities within the realms of art, architecture, and design as part of the evolving economic landscape.

Each day of the week during IAADB will feature theme-based exhibitions, including ‘Rite of Passage: Doors of India,’ ‘Bagh e bahar: Gardens as Universe: Gardens of India,’ ‘Sampravah: Confluence of Communities: Baolis of India,’ ‘Sthapatya: Anti-fragile algorithm: Temples of India,’ ‘Vismaya: Creative Crossover: Architectural Wonders of Independent India,’ and ‘Deshaj Bharat Design: Indigenous Designs,’ among others.
