Bengaluru: TEDxBangalore brings one of Bengaluru’s largest contemporary art exhibitions to mark their 10th Anniversary. The event is articulated around the theme ‘An Exhibition of Justice’ which speaks volumes about JUSTICE – in a positive, artistic way. There will be a diverse collective of art from 17 different artists from India and was inaugurated today by leading artists of Bengaluru.
When trust is at an all-time low, safe spaces become vital. So, TEDxBangalore decided to use it to create Safe Spaces and explore what JUSTICE means to Indians. Visit the Rangoli Art Center from April 22-30 to experience An Exhibition of Justice and view bold artwork from artists all over India.
Justice in the Indian context is a fragmented and inequitable artifact. So, TEDxBangalore curated artwork from local creators to spark fresh ideas and meaningful conversations about justice today. It is vital to encourage dialog on justice because it’s an issue that’s out of sight and out of mind for the vast majority of people until they directly encounter the need for rule of law.
Sartaj Anand, Curator of TEDx Bangalore said to The Balcony Stories, “An Exhibition of Justice is part of a series of satellite events leading to our upcoming conference TEDxBangalore – Safe Spaces, hosted at the Bangalore International Center(BIC) on May 28. We’re aiming to mobilize activism through art and will also be digitizing the entire experience to ensure the power of ideas worth spreading remains inclusive. Art has always been a playground for revolutionary ideas and I hope this exhibition will challenge us, provoke us, and force us to unpack our notions of justice, fairness, and equity. We look forward to welcoming everyone to this intervention.”
The TEDxBangalore – An Exhibition of Justice, art exhibition will be a nine-day event and the artists are available on selectdays to give insight of their work.

TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 30 years ago, TED has grown to support its mission with multiple initiatives. The two annual TED Conferences invite the world’s leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes or less. Many of these talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Sal Khan and Daniel Kahneman.
The annual TED Conference takes place each spring in Vancouver, British Columbia. TED’s media initiatives include TED.com, where new TED Talks are posted daily; TED Translators, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as translations from volunteers worldwide; the educational initiative TED-Ed. TED has established The Audacious Project that takes a collaborative approach to funding ideas with the potential to create change at thrilling scale; TEDx, which supports individuals or groups in hosting local, self- organized TED-style events around the world, and the TED Fellows program, helping world-changing innovators from around the globe to amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TED Talks videos and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
