KOCHI: Education should not based on something that has happened in the past, but must be related to situations that are yet to come, probably in the next ten years, artist K G Subramanyan said here on Thursday.

Subramanyam was speaking at ‘An Evening with KGS’, an interactive session organised by the Kochi Biennale Foundation (KBF) at the Kerala Folklore Museum at Thevara.

“India’s art institutions and centres are yet to catch up with the changes brought about by new technologies. Artists must make use of the wide range of possibilities offered by visual communication,” he said during a conversation with Kochi-Muziris Biennale 2014 curator Jitish Kallat and visual artist Suresh Jayaram.

He exhorted art-lovers not to gauge an artist by his/her achievements. He pointed out that some of the works that he did not approve of at one time later became acceptable to the people.
