The Foundation for Indian Contemporary Art (FICA) presents the second edition of Homepage, the exhibition that brings together the various artists and researchers supported by FICA’s award and grant programmes. Homepage 2016 will include the solo exhibition of the FICA Emerging Artist Award 2014 recipient Sachin George Sebastian with a show titled Sites of Metamorphosis, and project displays by Indrani Baruah and Mrugen Rathod of their public art projects developed under the FICA Public Art Grant 2013 and 2014. Homepage is a marathon event of exhibitions and public programming with the main focus on making visible the year-long work that happens at FICA as part of its various grant programmes, eductional activities and collaborative platforms.
Other than the exhibitions Homepage 2016 will include a roster of events and workshops which are open to the public. This events section of the exhibition will focus on issues of art, craft and ecology, with a panel dedicated to issues around water, and a series of presentations around collaborative practices in arts and crafts. There will be two projects underway with FICA’s Art Educators Forum, the an intensive workshop for art educators with Dr. Sarada Natarajan, and a teacher training programme in collaboration with Childscapes project of PVR Nest.
Continuing our focus on young curators, given our ongoing collaboration on Students’ Biennale with Kochi Biennale Foundation, FICA will be hosting a public presentation and curation workshop with Polish curator Marta Smolinska. While her talk will focus on her curatorial practice, the workshop for young curators will address the issue of trans-regional dialogues and forms of curatorial writing. There will also be a series of workshops for young artists during the duration of the show.
Additionally there will be walkthroughs of the exhibition for the public, students, and special groups. The complete schedule of the Homepage 2016 Events will be circulated shortly and will also be available by 23 July 2016 on the FICA website www.ficart.org
