On December 12, 2014, the Second Kochi-Muziris Biennale, curated by artist Jitish Kallat, opened in Kerala, India. The second edition of the Kochi-Muziris Biennale built upon the themes from the first Kochi-Muziris Biennale. So, before we dive into the second edition, let’s first revisit Indian’s inaugural international Biennale.

 

The first edition opened on December 12, 2012. It was a huge event and by all accounts, a success. In this podcast, Tanya Gill puts together a collection of artist interviews and viewer reactions from the first Biennale’s opening week in 2012, including celebrated artists Nalini Malani, Vivan Sundaram, Tallur L.N., Rohini Devasher, as well as Australian street artists Daniel Connell and Vextra, independent curator Amit Kumar Jain, and filmmaker Hatti Bowering.
