KT Kala held its fifth anniversary celebrations by organising an art show. The chief guest for the event was DEO Jugraj Singh and the exhibition showcased works of senior and amateur artists.
Five years on, the first private art space in the city to open its doors for artists, it is still trying to change the mindset and thereby, the prospect of art in the city. A venture of US-based art collector and businessman, Ravi Razdan, the gallery and art space is celebrating five years of promoting art in the city. The gallery is the first to provide free space for art display to budding artists, arts students and visiting artists from across the country, with just one aim- to make art visible. "When we opened our doors, the city had only Thakar Singh art gallery as an epicentre for fine and performing arts. Our motive was to break the 'limited audience' phenomenon that artists in city were battling against. Since our establishment, we have invited over 300 artists from the city and beyond for exhibitions and art shows, initiated art appreciation with Kala Shree awards and managed to promote local budding artists," informs Brijesh Jolly, director, KT Kala and an art critic.
With patron Ravi Razdan himself is an avid art collector, the gallery boosts of a fine collection with names like FN Souza, D Vithal, D Prabha and more. It is a mix of paintings, sculptures, art pieces and books, and also provides space for live workshops. The gallery has collaborated with artists from Kerala, Rajasthan and other places to visit and interact with artists from the city. It has also promoted art by organising art festivals and developing open art spaces like the one in Alpha One called Wall of Art.
But over the years, one agenda that remains their priority is to provide platform to young artists. Brijesh suggests artist's promotion as the solution, "We have offered our space to be used as a workshop studio for artists free of cost. This has encouraged young t alent and it gives them a much-needed platform. May be then we can get to the next level i.e. playing around with different art forms."
