The Srishti Collective is an annual exhibition and expo featuring the work of the students from the graduating batches of the Srishti Institute of Art, Design and Technology, Bangalore.
The 2017 edition marked the institute’s 21st anniversary and featured the work of nearly 220 students graduating from their undergraduate and graduate programs.
With a heavy emphasis on interdisciplinary study, the work featured at The Srishti Collective 2017 cut across subjects such as healthcare access, the reclamation of public spaces, reinterpretations of mythology, the reimagining of retail design, sustainable economies and environmental damage. The wide range of mediums chosen by the students stood testament to the vast spectrum of creativity that is constantly being nurtured at the institute.
We paid a visit to the collective and got to meet some very interesting young artists.
We think it’s important to host and participate in exhibitions such as The Srishti Collective because they provide valuable infrastructure and support to new artists. They offer a platform to showcase fresh perspective while also providing young artists the opportunity to be formally introduced into the professional networks of artists, designers and innovators. We will be adding the Srishti Collective to our list of annual events to look out for and would like to wish the graduating batch all the very best in all their endeavours.
