Curatorial Intensive South Asia 2023
Curatorial Intensive South Asia (CISA) is is an initiative of Khoj International Artists’ Association and Goethe-Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan. for young curators from South Asia. It is a fully-funded fellowship programme in the field of curatorial practices relevant to South Asia in the visual arts. The program aims to develop a diversity of perspectives on the medium of the exhibition and to provide a structured and an experimental inquiry into the possibilities of curatorial practice today.
The fifth edition of Curatorial Intensive South Asia (CISA) 2023 returns with tutors Latika Gupta, curator based in Delhi and Shuddhabrata Sengupta from Raqs Media Collective.
The Phase I of the Intensive is a combination of talks, seminars and workshops that look at histories of exhibition-making, institutions and their limitations. Emerging discussions incorporate a wide range of curatorial frameworks and practices – non-instrumental knowledge that draws from various themes; patches of ideas that could lend themselves to varied contexts. The Fellows will be given the opportunity to independently develop curatorial projects over a period of six months during which they will be mentored by the programme leaders, culminating in exhibitions (Phase II) in December 2023.
