MS Maqtha is being slowly transformed into an art district over the last few days. Soon, it’s residents will wake up to a fairy tale ambience. The St+Art India Foundation, with support from Asian Paints, Krishnakriti Foundation, Art at Telangana, government of Telangana, GHMC and Bonjour India, is spearheading the project, which will bring art to the doorsteps of common people who seldom visit galleries and museums.
Giulia Ambrogi, Co-Founder and Festival Curator, St+Art India Foundation, says, “With every festival and public art project, we try to highlight the importance of opening platforms for emerging artists or those with limited exposure and their intersection with the art world. Cultural variations across India are now activating interesting areas and creating cultural hubs, which are contemporary. At the same time, these cultural hubs are creating new flows of tourism in cities and are also changing the way citizens interact with art.”
