Kalamanch Art Competition 2020

Description

With Kalamanch, Abhyuday IIT Bombay wants to provide a platform for exceptional artists and NGOs from all backgrounds to showcase their artwork.

Art and photography is the silent and subtle expression of emotions, experiences, and thoughts. Art does not show people what to do, yet engaging with a good work of art can connect one to their senses, body, and mind. Through pictures, paintings, photography and other artwork one can easily communicate what one intends to.

This year’s theme is” the Persona of GenZ”. GenZ refers to the generation of people born between 1995 to 2015. But what comes to your mind when you think of GenZ? How would you describe GenZ’s era? All entries, whether it is for photography, painting or infographics must focus on the characteristics of GenZ’s time. The entries need not only focus on the issues that we see during our time. They can also portray positives like technological advancement, better literacy rates, decriminalization of section 377, etc.
