The Report is an in-depth analysis of the far-reaching socioeconomic and cultural impact of the biennial exhibition, the Kochi Biennale Foundation’s education and outreach programmes, and the many surrogate events that have taken place since the genesis of KMB. The Report was released in Thiruvananthapuram by Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan, alongside KPMG Chairman and CEO Arun Kumar, in the presence of Finance Minister Dr. TM Thomas Isaac, and Kadakampally Surendran, minister for Minister for Co-operation, Tourism and Devaswoms.
