is an initiative created in December 2012 by Kasha Vande, Yannick Cormier, Andreas Deffner and Muthu K. Created to get art out there for the public in a non exclusive environment, Pondy ART presents large format photography exhibitions that center around a theme of building awareness of the issues challenging India today.
The Pondy ART team challenges the more traditional approach to exhibition installation breaking convention by experimenting with venue, material, lighting, scale and presentation.
More than 14 exhibitions have been presented on city streets as well as in vacant properties in an economical and unique style. Exhibitions have covered issues such as challenged
communities, specific regions and their tribal inhabitants, religious rituals and environmental issues. Pondy ART presents works by both emerging and internationally recognised photographers on an almost monthly basis.
Pondy ART events continue to draw crowds from all social and economic
backgrounds together in a single space to enjoy and discover the arts.
Pondy ART, in association with the Delhi Photo Fest, also presented Pondy PHOTO 2014, a photography festival incorporating over 40 exhibitions,workshops, presentations and performances in March 2014 to international acclaim. Pondy Photo
