Organizers

Art Bengaluru, over the last seven editions, has defined the face of Contemporary Art & Culture in Bangalore. The Art Festival brings together a mélange of reputed artists and their works from across the world in an effort to increase art appreciation in the city and encourage fresh thinking.

Organizing an event of this scale wouldn’t be possible without a strong support system, for which credit goes to Prestige Group, Sublime Galleria & The Collection at UB City.
