Art Is Life

Launched in 2020 by organiser Museum of Art & Photography (MAP), Art is Life is a festival that celebrates the “interconnectedness of the arts and their significance in our everyday life through stories, performances, artworks and experts”. It is held every December to mark the launch of MAP’s digital museum. The inaugural online edition showcased the museum’s collection in a weeklong series of events such as narrations and performances.

The second instalment in 2021, which was also executed digitally, was themed around music and explored the “power of the museum and music to bring people together”. Entitled SoundFrames, it comprised concerts, lecture demonstrations, panel discussions, workshops and exhibitions that cut across a range of genres from “the classical to the contemporary”. 

Art historian B. N. Goswamy, lyricist Javed Akhtar, actors Shabana Azmi and Arundhati Nag, bharatanatyam dancer Malavika Sarukkai, singer Kavita Seth, artist Jitish Kallat, composer Ricky Kej and the groups Kabir Cafe and Penn Masala have been part of the festival so far. The museum is looking at hosting a hybrid version this year.
