Pune Biennale Foundation is an organization established to bring together art, architecture and design for enhancing visual aesthetics in Pune. The Foundation will work towards positioning Pune on the global art scenario by promoting local talent and creating a platform for artists to critically engage with public art and public spaces.
Our flagship exhibition, Habit-co-Habit, curated by Zasha Colah and Luca Cerizza, explored various modes of cohabitation and social habits to host a reflection on the potentialities, repercussions and consequences of such a movement of people, and of the process of modernisation and urban development.
Since the end of Pune Biennale 2017, the Foundation has been working on several projects, such as Pune Speaking Walls, DP Road Project, Smart Heritage in Smart City, etc.
Our main objectives are to provide an open platform for professionals related to art, design, architecture, and other cultural activities to exchange ideas regarding cultural development of the city, to establish contact between art related organizations and facilitate the exchange of information, experiences and expertise within a global network of similar organizations, to develop and implement the highest standards of art and cultural production, to support interdisciplinary research and production of knowledge related to contemporary art and exhibitions around the world and to diffuse knowledge and promote public awareness of different forms of art and celebrating their diversity.
