back bone art work by Shantamani Muddaiah kochi - muziris biennale 2014
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.

Please stay tuned for the forthcoming second Kochi-Muziris Biennale podcast. This podcast, as well as photographs of the

and additional interviews, can be found at zacii.com. Additional information on the Kochi-Muziris Biennale can be found at http://kochimuzirisbiennale.org.

Tanya Gill is a visual artist who lives between Chicago, USA and Chandigarh, India.

A special thank you to everyone who took the time to talk in December 2012! It was amazing to witness this groundbreaking event.
