Pi is an independent artists’ collective based in Kolkata and Shantiniketan that was initiated in 2012. It’s a conglomeration of artists, theoreticians, academicians, and students from multi disciplines under one platform whose beliefs include experimenting and exploring the traditional, modernist and contemporary spaces in the cultural paradigm. PI initiates and executes various Public art projects around the country, ranging from performances, workshops to exhibitions, seminars, and films collaborating with individuals, groups, and organizations.
PI organizes an annual performance art festival KIPAF (Kolkata International Performance Art Festival) which is known for its public involvement and viewership. KIPAF is one of the pioneer performance art festivals in India that focusses on spreading messages to public through performance.
There is a connection, hard to explain logically but easy to feel, between achievement in public life and progress in the arts.
