Kochi Muziris Biennale – Visit by JD Students
On Monday, January 23rd, 2023, our JD Institute of Fashion Technology Cochin students attended the Kochi Muziris Biennale, which was held at Darbar Hall. where the students gained an understanding of the importance of exposure to art in developing their design visualization and thinking abilities.
The Kochi Muziris Biennale is an annual event that takes place between December and April and features a variety of creative art activities including programmes, events, student workshops, and exhibitions. Children’s art, discussion series, master practice studios, video labs, residency exhibitions, and artist cinema are among the programmes listed under Programs.
The students had the opportunity to be part of the stunning conceptual work of art known as IDAM: WHERE BEING SPROUTS INTO LANGUAGE. The objective of the project is to explore contemporary art in Kerala from the viewpoint of three curators who themselves are artists: Gigi Scaria, Jalaja PS, and Radha Gomaty. Each of them has selected 30 artists from their own nation. President of the Biennale Foundation Bose Krishnamachari, Chairperson of the Kerala Lalithakala Akademi Murali Cheeroth, and Secretary Balamuralikrishnan honored the curators for their outstanding efforts during the exhibition’s opening.
Our students were amused to learn that there has been such a profusion of visual artists practicing such a wide range of complex visual languages, which was more of an inspiration that could be transfused into the industry in various forms. Given that this show is limited to a single dedicated venue, the elegant period building of the Durbar Hall Art Gallery, to house the works of a tentative estimate of about 10 artists per curator, Students from JD Institute of Fashion Technology in Cochin learned at the conclusion of their visit that the workpiece was merely a tiny thimble full of the many various kinds of creative skill that existed.
At JD Institute Of Fashion Technology Cochin, we value persistence, collaboration, creative thinking and problem solving equally. We encourage our students to improve their academic performance and self-confidence by providing them with good exposure to the art world, which can help them develop many positive skills. As a result, through our meticulously designed curriculum, we assist our students in following their passions.
