Projects : Batting For Art, 2013

‘Batting for Art’… Khelo Front Foot Pe , brought our most popular sport- cricket and art that touches the heart, together on a shared platform, to the city’s art-loving public and connoisseurs. The concept supported by the Delhi Daredevils and conceptualized by Creatigies, was a fund raiser for Arts4All Residency Programme and its other social development initiatives in the art domain. The exhibition celebrated the diverse and vibrant spirit of the Delhi Daredevils, while the unique collection also reflected the artists’ creative impulses and styles. The paintings on the specially made large sized (about 5ft high) bats, created a wide public connect.  The bat installations were displayed at various venues including at the Marquee in Feroz Shah Kotla grounds when the team played its home games, and  also later on at the  Rajiv Chowk metro station and  at the T3 Terminal at the airport in Delhi. The exhibition

brought art and sport, as well as public  and media, across various sections of the society together.  And the multiple forums where they were displayed helped artworks reached a wider audience.
