In situ_India paintings show by Kevin Todd

Kevin Todd is an artist and designer originally from Ireland and living in Australia since the early 1980s. He is a graduate of Sydney College of the Arts and the Tasmanian School of Art and currently SeniorLecturer in computer-based art and design at the University of the Sunshine Coast, Queensland. 

Kevin has exhibited and undertaken residencies and projects internationally including with the Australian Antarctic Division, the Australian Museum and the Australian Pulp and Paper Institute. In 1995 he spent a year in Malaysia on an Asialink fellowship and he has also been a visiting professor at the State University of New York and a visiting scholar at New York University. 

His art practice has two components; art-for-architecture where work is made/designed for a specific context and work for exhibition, which is generally more personal. A feature of his exhibition work has been a concern with limits of rationalism and the relationship between art, science and technology in Western culture. More information on Kevin’s work is available at-

This is his second residency stint at 1.Shanthiroad.

As the New Year approaches Vimochana  collaborated with 1.Shanthiroad and  has come out with it’s annual Desktop Calendar, a major source of fund-raising for it’s work on issues related to violence against women.

The theme for this year's Calendar is "At Home in the World: Women in Public Spaces" through which we want to celebrate the women who have fearlessly made themselves visible in public spaces, a space largely construed of as a masculine space. Six Bangalore-based photographers have contributed their stunning black and white images to the Calendar.
