Kochi-Muziris Biennale to be held in line with COVID-19 norms

Kochi: The Kochi-Muziris Biennale would be held in line with the COVID-19 norms mandated by both the Centre and state governments, the organisers have said. The Biennale is usually held in December.

The advisory committee meet decided to go ahead with the Biennale as per the instructions of the governments and Indian Medical Association.

"After evaluating the COVID-19 situation next month, we will make a decision on whether the Biennale has to be postponed," said director Bose Krishnamachari. He, however, exuded hope that they would not have to postpone the event.
