After 20 editions in Mumbai and Delhi, India’s contemporary art festival now comes to Hyderabad. It is our maiden show in the city.

The festival is currently underway at Kings Kohinoor Convention, Gudi Malkapur Road.

Art must be affordable to all. Every house must have a piece of art. Minister Jupally Krishna Rao, the Minister for Excise and Prohibition, Tourism and Culture, Government of Telangana.

Every home should have a beautiful landscape painting, painting, a piece of abstract art or a sculpture, an artefact, or a photo. They brighten up the place and create a focal point. While it gives a good feeling, it also helps artisans. Many arts and crafts forms are vanishing. It also helps to revive them. Overall, the artists and artisans need encouragement. The India Art Festival is a must-visit festival. I will revisit tomorrow leisurely and buy some art. I also appeal to all corporate houses, my Minister colleagues and bureaucrats to visit the India Art Festival and encourage young and budding artists. Telangana Government is committed to developing arts and crafts in the state.

Guest of Honour Parvathi Reddy said art must be affordable. Art is for all. Art is a unifying factor. Art bonds people. It lights up the place. Art culture must be cultivated. Festivals like this will help young, talented, budding artists to showcase their works. It also offers them a platform to reach out to people.

K. Laxma Goud, the eminent artist said Art is a visual object or experience created through an expression of skill, talent, and imagination. He appreciated the organisers for bringing the show to Hyderabad
