Khoj International Artist's Association, New Delhi in collaboration with VAC-Visual Art Collective~1.Shanthiroad Studio/Gallery, Bangalore is hosting a residency programme for young curators as part of the four-year Curatorship Programmeconceptualized by India Foundation for the Arts (IFA) in collaboration with select institutions across the country. This is the third residency in a series of projects that KHOJ will undertake as the nodal centre facilitating curatorial practice in the visual arts. The Curatorship Programme is funded by the Jamsetji Tata Trust.
The residency aims to establish a model of practice-based training for curators. The resident curator (two curators shall be selected for the residency) will benefit from the support and network of art practitioners that are associated with KHOJ and 1.Shanthiroad Studio/Gallery. The first of its kind residency aims to develop a training ground for emerging curators who will engage with various modes of artistic practice as well as be actively involved in critical writing.
We are pleased to invite applications from contemporary arts curators for the third residency in 2012.
