PUBLICA 2016: Select City Walk Mall, New Delhi

23 January - 29 February 2016

PUBLICA 2016 has invited Indian and International artists to produce works to feature in the festival under this year’s curatorial theme, ‘Touch’. Artists will make site specific works responding to the local context and guided by the festival’s theme. The finished works will be placed in high footfall areas around Delhi and for the first time, Mumbai.

The 2016 edition will be spread over fifteen to twenty indoor and outdoor high footfall venues ranging from cultural centres, to bustling street markets, metro stations, parks and teeming shopping malls. The city will become the backdrop for a series of visual and performance based installations created by a range of artists who will create visually engaging, dynamic pieces of public art. Artists in PUBLICA 2016 include Gigi Scaria, Anant Mishra, Owais Husain, Deepjyoti Kalita, Krishna Murari, Tushar Joag, Jasone Bilbao, Bhuwal Prasad and Raktim Parashar.
