To popularise and increase art awareness among people and promote emerging artforms and artists, Art Bengaluru was started in 2010, as a brain child of reputed Bangalorean and art patron Uzma Irfan.
Now after eight successful editions, it is hailed as one of India’s leading art events, and South India’s premier contemporary art festival. The event brings together the best of artists, galleries, art collectors, and art aficionados under one roof, year after year.
