This year the Graphic Design department students left Bengaluru to visit Kochi, Kerala as a part of their academic trip. The students predominantly explored the famed Kochi-Muziris Biennale, the biennial Art Festival where more than a thousand artists are participating this year, the various artworks, installations, sculptures, paintings are sure to enhance the students artistic, aesthetic, creative & design knowledge. Students also explored the natural and cultural beauty in and around Kochi by visiting various other historical & traditional places and by engaging themselves in various academic activities like Sketching, Illustration, Documentation, Photography etc.

Indian and international artists exhibited their artworks across a variety of mediums including film, installation, painting, sculpture, new media and performance art.
