Exhibition pattern of today’s time dates back only a couple of hundred years however the concept has been existing among us for more than thousand years. In general, we organize any exhibition to share our notion and knowledge. It can be in a small or large scale. If it is in an international level, it means it’s a huge source of knowledge, where lots of notion’s art and culture are visible under the same roof. Not only that, it’s also creates a platform for huge cultural exchange.
Similar to the other international art events Triennale India in Delhi was one. This show had started in 1968 and it suddenly stopped in 2005. Within this timeline Lalit Kala Akademi was able to organize eleven of its editions successfully.
There is a proverb, “nobody forgets anything just in terms of necessity communication decreases and distance increases”. But, it doesn’t mean, the necessity of Triennale India’s has ceased. It has been a guiding star for us, showing the new window to take our art practice ahead, It may be not directly but definitely a propeller from behind. Therefore due to the distance we can’t say Triennal India has vanished. Past never gets over, anywhere anyhow it stays and through all of our next step it shall prove its existence.
