Bengaluru Airport calls for proposals for artwork to be displayed at Terminal 2

Bengaluru International Airport Limited (BIAL) has placed a call inviting people to send in their artwork. It has invited artists and art groups to submit proposals for art to be featured at Terminal 2 of Kempegowda International Airport, Bengaluru.

The T2 terminal is set to reflect two themes: Karnataka’s rich heritage and culture and, naurasa – the nine emotions highlighted in Bharata's Natyashastra.

The proposals, invited for specific locations across T2, must be original and not replicas of previous work. An independent advisory panel and BIAL stakeholders are set to evaluate the proposals. They are set to display artwork ranging across mediums from sculptures to digital art.

A BIAL spokesperson said that the Bengaluru Airport is a “gateway to new India” and that they aim to give travellers a true experience of the state and the country. He added that art has an amazing ability to create delight and provide wonder and that these installations might do just that to an otherwise mundane act of boarding a flight.

BIAL’s Art Programme?is set to include permanent displays and rotating exhibitions. It is an attempt at creating a space for?sharing?stories?about Bangaluru Airport, Bengaluru’s?culture?and?the people who make it unique. The Art Programme hopes to create lighter moments at the?terminal?and?evoke?a feeling of pride?among?the people of Karnataka, a media release said.

Gardens will be a primary focus in the terminal and the atmosphere might have high humidity. Artists were requested to keep this in mind while proposing their ideas.
