About Us

Calcutta – West Bengal has always played a pioneering and very significant role in the history of indigenous art & cultural movements and undoubtedly widely recognized as the capital of Art & Cultural movement of India, where some of the most wondrous works of physical art & cultural activities took place since avant-garde movement in the subcontinent. We have reputable institutions of art established in the city and to paraphrase a great man, probably more artists per square foot than football players. In spite of all pedigree, the first Biennale of the state – Bangla Biennale was instituted in 2018 and is so far probably the first rural biennale in the world history. This initiative took place by Narrative Movements – an International artists’ group in association with Komdhara Baroari Samity – a collective organization with the villagers through a massive, international, interdisciplinary, contemporary art exhibition rather a cultural fest in Komdhara, Hooghly, West Bengal.
