Prameya Art Foundation (PRAF) focuses on bridging the gap between the arts and the social space, and cultivating new audiences for contemporary art. PRAF Publish was conceptualised to realize the production and publication of an artist book, selected from proposals received from artists by an independent jury.

PRAF realizes that the print medium, vis a vis affordable artist books with larger print runs, has the potential for wide reach across domestic and public spaces as a form that allows readers to access, hold and handle artworks and there are several artists committed to the medium in the region but few resources that support the realization of such projects. It would also be a way to encourage visual artists to experiment with the format and tell stories that relate to their larger practice.

PRAF invites proposals for artists’ publications from creative practitioners based in Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka. They will thereafter present the final applications before a grand jury that will select the winner from the shortlisted applications. PRAF hopes to announce a winner by the year-end or early next year.

Roli Books is PRAF’s publisher and distributor for India and internationally. Emami Art is the principal partner for this edition.
