The port city of Kochi, India
Yesterday it was announced the creation of the emerging economic giant's first-ever major art biennial. Set to debut in 2012, the Kochi-Muziris Biennale will take place in port city of Kochi in the Kerala province on the southwest coast of India, and in neighboring Muziris, known for a rich historical heritage that reaches back to the days when it was a center for spice-trading with the Roman Empire.
