Chennai Photo Biennale Foundation
The CPB Foundation celebrates and promotes photography as a practice and an art form.
Through lens-based educational programs and cross-disciplinary events, we aim to foster a community that inspires curiosity, reflection, and self-expression. Today, the Foundation stands in the midst of the global contemporary art scene on four major pillars: CPB Prism (student education wing), CPB Learning Lab (cross-disciplinary discussions and workshops), CPBx (residencies, grants, and long-term collaborations), and the Chennai Photo Biennale (an international photography festival).
- Establish the Chennai Photo Biennale as an important contemporary engagement for photography in South Asia
- Bring art education and visual art literacy within reach of as diverse an audience as possible
- Provide a platform for Indian and international photographic talent to be recognized regardless of class, caste, race, gender, ethnic background, or sexual orientation
- Create an ecosystem for visual artists in South Asia by sharing resources, artists, projects, and successful practices with other festivals.
- Build public-art engagements around photography in heritage spaces, college campuses, beaches, parks, and train stations
