Photo exhibition GOWDAS, October 6 to 17
When arts and solidarity meet
In partnership with France Inde Karnataka, the photographer Alexis Dubourdieu presents « Gowdas ». While the exhibition highlights traditional and rural India, the photographer takes you to Halligudi village to discover its inhabitants, their houses and way of living in the unknown region of Karnataka, in South India.
The exhibition also provides us with the opportunity to present the work done by the association, which has been managing a healthcare center for villagers and their families for over 20 years. Themes such as solidarity, development and access to healthcare therefore become meaningful through the photographer’s artistic proposal.
To make your travel as complete as possible, we offer yoga classes, a conference by Marc Ballanfat, specialist of Indian philosophy, and a concert. This last one introduces the public to the Bollywood legend, thanks to the venue of the famous Bollywood Maharaja, singers and dancers with traditional and colorful dresses, who will share their energy with the audience.
The exhibit takes place from October 6th to 17th at the Grands-Voisins, previously known as the Hôpital Saint-Vincent-de-Paul, in the 14th arrondissement in Paris, and with the support of the curator Marie Deparis-Yafil.
