Serendipity Arts Foundation, in collaboration with Foundation for Indian Contemporary Art (FICA) is looking for applications for an upcoming workshop titled ‘Mapping the Shifting Terrains – Reading Public/Reading Art’. The course attempts to think together and interrogate the relationship between the notion of the public, and public art.

Structured as a reading group, the course will explore the multiple dimensions of public art practices, their audiences, and constituent, emerging vocabularies. The role of art in the public realm in the 21st Century is one with a multidisciplinary emphasis, and this workshop seeks to map out the present socio-cultural/ political moment for public art through modes of reading and writing that will critically consider what public art is un/able to respond to today.


The course is open for those with a deep interest in the subject of Public Art and are working, or researching on it or on other allied areas. The course will require some amount of reading ahead of each session. Participants who sign up for it should be ready to commit to the whole programme and be present for every session.
