St+Art Delhi Announces Massive Exhibition 'WIP - The Street Art Show'
25 January 2016
St+art India Foundation is back in the capital for its fourth edition of St+art Delhi, which kicked off in December last year and will continue till next month. The team at the foundation has also announced the details for ‘WIP - The Street Art Show' – a unique open-air exhibition that aims to convert the largest dry port in Asia - Inland Container Depot in Tughlakabad, New Delhi, into a vibrant work of art.
The WIP exhibition (an acronym for Work In Progress), which features the work of 24 artists from around the globe officially launches this Sunday, 31 January in an invite only event but is open to the public for the rest of the month.
St+art Delhi 2016 focuses this year between the walls of Khanna Market and Meherchand Market to inject life and colour into Delhi’s emblematic Lodhi colony. This is one of the most successful art initiatives to come out of the country in the last couple of years and has in previous years transformed spaces like Shahpur Jat and Hauz Khas Village.
“Art has been a novelty of the elite for far too long and with the festival we aim to change exactly that. With the Lodhi Art District project we hope to create an opportunity for a larger number of people to not only experience art, but also have conversations around it - leading to ideas of reimagining public spaces and the effects art can have on building community pride.” - Akshat Nauriyal, Co-Founder & Content Director
