this link just has some good ideas what comes to happen in the metropole of design, architecture, art and  haute couture.

Torino, Milano, Venezia

the milano world expo is the new platform, we want to use also for the purpose of the outcoming with all the work from the past 10 years.

rules for the 2012 pallava sculpture symposium


The first edition of Pallava Symposium was organized in year 2011 through the joint efforts of sculptors : Urs Floryamo (Italy), Mark Stonestreet (UK), D.V.Murugan (India), Shanmuga Kumar (India), and R.Somasundaram (India).

Eight sculptors from across the globe united for an exchange of culture and technical expertise at the Pallava International Sculpture Symposium in India. This was the first ever International Sculpture Symposium held at Mamallapuram (Tamil Nadu), a World Heritage Site elected by UNESCO. The Symposium extended from Jan’21 – Feb’7, 2011 at sculptor D.V.Murugan’s Art Studio and the Exhibition thereafter in the period Feb’9 – Feb’24, 2011 at the East Raja Street Garden.

The participants were :

D.V.Murugan (India)

Urs Floryamo (Italy)

Mark Stonestreet (UK)

Hemant Sonawane (India)

Demian Wust (Switzerland)

Sanyasi Red (India)

Stephen Pepin (Switzerland)

Kota Parthasaradhi (India)

The symposium has hence successfully established as an event organized by artists for artists. During the course of the first symposium meeting, two other participating sculptors – Hemant Sonawane (India) and Sanyasi Red (India) offered to contribute efforts towards organizing the forthcoming editions.

Following are the derivations of the meeting :

1. Till such time that the Symposium is taken charge of by the Government of India, local State Government, Village Panchayat or by any other registered organization, the following team shall continue to build up resources for upcoming editions : Urs Floryamo (Italy), Mark Stonestreet (UK), D.V.Murugan (India), Hemant Sonawane (India) and Sanyasi Red (India).

2. The second edition of Pallava Symposium of International Sculpture will be scheduled during year 2012. Thereafter, it will be organized as a Biennial event.

3. The first edition of Pallava Symposium having been a ‘paid’ one, it was suggested that efforts be made to tap Art Funding for next year’s event. This would encourage more international sculptors to attend. Also, it would alleviate the burden of funding from the organizing team, which essentially comprises artists based across the globe. Centralization of finance would leave more time for the Organizing Team to focus on creative and marketing aspects of the symposium.

4. Attempts will be made to gain sponsorship – in part or in entirety – for Pallava Symposium 2012. Sponsorships could be achieved through Art Funding by Government Agencies, Corporates, Art Lovers, Art Investors, Art Incubators, Art Galleries or Established Artists. Details of progress shall be updated at the Pallava Website duly.

5. The domain : shall be treated as the official website for Pallava Symposium till a separate domain is registered and hosted through Sponsorship. The email : shall be treated as the official administrative email i.d. for Pallava Symposium till a dedicated domain email is made available through Sponsorship.

6.In case the Organizing Members of Pallava Symposium are not able to find sponsors through their individual/group efforts until 7months prior to the scheduled commencement date of Pallava Symposium 2012, the offer of Sanyasi Red to organize this edition under his own registered organization, Rang Vikalp, will be considered. It may be noted that Mark Stonestreet and D.V.Murugan are also members of Rang Vikalp. In such a situation, Rang Vikalp shall be liable to propose sponsors, also Rang Vikalp’s Terms and Conditions for accepting the responsibility. Organizers of Pallava Symposium are free to accept or reject the T&C of Rang Vikalp. In case of Pallava Symposium 2012 getting conducted under the Rang Vikalp umbrella, fresh efforts will be made again by the Original Organizers to fetch sponsors independently for year 2014 edition of the Symposium. Sponsorships for each edition will be decided independently unless specifically jointly voted otherwise by the Organizing Members.

7. Participants of the first edition, henceforth referred to as Pioneers, shall have the privilege of attending the 2012 and 2014 editions of Pallava Symposium at their choice, as wild-card entries informed well in advance, in addition to other sculptors specifically selected for that particular edition.

8. A call for artists shall be put up on the Pallava website 6months prior to the commencement date. 40days shall be allotted to interested participants for sending in their portfolios and proposed designs. The final list of chosen participants shall be declared 20days hence. Artists shall be given their one-way travel dues (on presentation of receipts) after one week of commencement of the symposium. Artists shall be reimbursed with the participation grants on a weekly basis. All such grants mentioned herein, are subject to availability of sponsors.

9. The Selection Committee will shortlist 15 sculptors in excess to the Pioneers as Final Participants. No discrimination regarding nationality, race, caste, gender or special abilities will be made in the selection process. The committee will strive to reserve a quota of at least 5 artists belonging to the host country (India) for each edition of the Pallava Symposium. In case of inadequate applications received from Indian artists, the quota may be replaced by foreign sculptors for that specific year.

10.  Any artists who fail to confirm their participation 3 months prior to the commencement date of Symposium, will not be entitled to any form of financial sponsorships.

It will be obligatory for Symposium Participants to attend this socialization initiative. A sponsored Dinner will be organized on the last day of the Symposium, after the event is concluded and Participation Certificates duly distributed.

The liability of Sponsors is applicable only for items specifically mentioned in contract papers, and will last only through the period of symposium. Artists are required to submit their Departure Flight receipts to the organizers, within one week of commencement of the symposium, failing which reimbursement for return travel may not be claimed.
