Knight in the shining armor
Kala Ghoda Arts Festival
Kala Ghoda Association, was formed on 30th October 1998 with the object of maintaining and preserving the heritage and art district of South Mumbai.
Kala Ghoda Arts Festival is the country’s largest multicultural festival, taking place in February each year. The Festival draws visitors in large numbers, not just from the city but from all over the country, and the world.
20 years ago, Kala Ghoda Association was formed with the idea of giving back to the city we call home - the thriving megapolis of Mumbai. And, thereafter was born the biggest street art festival that India has - the Kala Ghoda Arts Festival.
Kala Ghoda is for, of and about the PEOPLE. It is a celebration of art, culture, music and people above all. Rigid and Durable steel box sections along with mirrors have been used to bring this interactive structure to life. The mirrors and stained glass attempt to encapsulate the colourful MEMORIES of this festival. The skewed reflections created by the the mirrors along with the acrylic panels are representative of our hazy memories of the past 20 years of the
Kalaghoda Art festival. The form is an abstract take on the symbolic Kala Ghoda, porous with seating spaces and colourful niches.
