16 December, 2012, Kochin, INDIA: Artist Ariel Hassan gives a speech at a dinner for Australian artists at the Kochi-Muziris Biennale at the Gateway Hotel. The Biennale curators travelled Down Under to select an exciting group of artists to take part in this celebration of contemporary art from around the world, which is expected to become one of Asia's best arts events. The Biennale acknowledges the cosmopolitan modernity of Kochi and the international connections established by the ancient port of Muziris that existed 30km north of Kerala's current commercial capital.
