The first ever International Kala Mela (4-17 Feb’18) begins in New Delhi
The First ever International Kala Mela is being organized from 4-17 February 2018 at the IGNCA, New Delhi. With a total of 325 exhibition stalls, it has more than 800 participants from various countries such as China, Venezuela, Peru, Portugal, Srilanka, Poland, Tunisia, Mexico, Bangladesh, Trinidad, Tobago, Fiji, France, Papua New Guinea, Czechia, UK, Spain and Brazil. The event was inaugurated by the Vice President of India, M. Venkaiah Naidu.
The International Kala Mela has been organised by the Lalit Kala Akademi in partnership with Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts (IGNCA) under the Ministry of Culture.
It may be noted that the Ministry of Culture has also taken up the ambitious project of Cultural Mapping of India by registering artists across the country on a portal and 1.17 crore such artists have already been registered
Reportedly, this is for the first time that the Akademi has planned the International Kala Mela at such a large scale. It will be a boon to especially those artists who cannot afford to exhibit their works of art in the Art Galleries. With a firm commitment to the art fraternity, the Kala Mela will be a great delight to observe the paradigms of the contemporary nuances of the modernistic trends in art.
