KERALA TOURISM NEWSLETTER
Lokame Tharavadu Extended till November 30
Lokame Tharavadu, an art exhibition conducted by the Kochi Biennale Foundation at Alappuzha, has been extended till November 30.
Tourism Minister Mr P.A. Mohamed Riyas said the exhibition will help revive the art scene, grappling with the COVID-19 pandemic, in the state. The minister said the decision to extend the exhibition was taken after considering public opinion. The art exhibition gives confidence to artists and the public during these tough times, the minister said.
The art show was inaugurated on April 18 this year but had to be stopped in May because of rise in COVID-19 cases. It was reopened to the public on August 14 and was supposed to end on September 30.
The show exhibits the works of 267 artists, including 56 women, who trace their origins to Kerala. Curated by Bose Krishnamachari, the theme of the exhibition, the world is one family, is drawn from the verses of a Malayalam poem written by Vallathol Narayana Menon, which appeals to the universal spirit of humanity.
In Alappuzha, it is held at Kerala State Coir Corporation, New Model Society, Eastern Produce Company Ltd and William Goodacre & Sons Pvt. Ltd.
