Kochi Biennale Foundation announces ARK (Art Rises for Kerala) in collaboration with SaffronArt, a live auction of modern and contemporary art that will be held on January 18, 2019, in Kochi. With great generosity, over 40 Indian and international artists will contribute their work to the effort, including Dayanita Singh, Subodh Gupta, and Anish Kapoor.
The auction is an effort to bring together the Indian and global art community to help rebuild Kerala after the recent disastrous floods. All proceeds will be directed to the Chief Minister’s Distress Relief Fund, a targeted effort by the Government of Kerala to provide relief to those affected. Along with the distribution of basic goods, resources, and immediate care, the Fund is also helping to rebuild damaged infrastructure all over the state.
