About

The 5th edition of ‘Art Bengaluru’ aims to reflect upon the Renaissance period, one of the most prominent art periods in Europe, by highlighting some of the best works. The Collection – UB City this year, will be transformed into a European haven of art, giving us a glimpse of the past, by bringing alive the Renaissance period. The rich chapters of European Art History will be the inspiration for the décor, theme and installations within UB City, whose architecture already resonates an international theme. From mashaal lighting, a frame entrance to enter the venue, the Colosseum as the backdrop for the evening’s entertainment, a life-size book elaborating on the various famous paintings of this period, an enormous scroll with information on the era to junk art of paintings from the period, the festival is all set to transport one back in time to one of the most enriching eras of European Art.

The word ‘Renaissance’ is a French word meaning rebirth and that is literally what it refers to. It refers to the rebirth of art and culture in Europe after the Middle Ages, that basically passed by without the arts. Renaissance refers to the actual revolution, which lay solely in the arts and focused around one of the city-states of Italy, Florence. This revolution was the resurgence of creative study and the glorification of artists, painters and sculptures, instead of them being treated as baggage in the community. The central issue in the development of Renaissance Art in Italy was the renewed connection with Classical Antiquity, that is, ancient philosophy, literature and science from Ancient Greece and Rome. Michelangelo, Leonardo Da Vinci and Raphael were some of the famous artists from this period.
