‘Sarasvati Pune’ an art exhibition to be hosted between April 23 to April 24 2022 in Pune
‘Sarvansathi Pune’, an art exhibition focused on the public spaces will be hosted in Pune. The event will be held as part of the Bonjour India 2022, an artistic, cultural, educational, and social initiative put together by the French Cooperation Network in India.
Alliance Française de Pune, PVP College of Architecture, Prasanna Desai Architects, Centre for Environment Education, MIST LGBTQ Foundation, and Aarzoo is hosting this exhibition.
“Under this initiative, a team of architects from Social Design Collaborative and students from PVP College of Architecture will travel across six neighborhoods in Pune — Yerwada Slum, Koregaon Park, Mohamadwadi, Dahanukar Colony, Kasba Peth, and Mukund Nagar — to interact with the local communities and then map the relationship they share with the city,” said Adèle Spieser, Director, Alliance Française de Pune.
“The maps that emerge from these community interactions will bring out local histories, diverse narratives, and patterns on how the public spaces of Pune are used, based on factors such as gender, identity, age, abilities as well as economic background, class, and caste,” she added.
‘Sarvansathi Pune’ will be open for public viewing on ITI Road, Aundh in front of F-Cube between April 23, and April 24, 2022, from 5 pm onwards. Entry to this exhibition cum public arts show is free.
The project, curated by architect Swati Janu and urban anthropologist Chris Blache, seeks to generate awareness through dialogue and art.
