FICA, in collaboration with SAT, invites applications from young artists to a month long course that begins from September 11 and runs until October 13, 2017.
The proposed, full-time course is designed for young artists who are looking to closely engage with experienced practitioners and explore diverse mediums and materials. With a particular focus on light, movement and narrative, the course open up possibilities of conceptualising and making through the process of research, reading, experimenting with mediums, collaboration and exchange. The students are given an insight into how artists turn to the city as studio, mining various resources, individuals and forming their own support structures. Each class has been designed around the practice of the artist who conducts the session and provides triggers to young practitioners to experiment. The emphasis through all the modules will remain on exercises and explorations carried out by the participants.
Mentors include Susanta Mandal, Chandan Gomes and Babu Eshwar Prasad –will be taking week long modules on kinetic art, photography and video respectively. There will also be the sustained inputs of artist and educator Lokesh Khodke who will be overseeing the entire course.
The Objective for this course is not just to explore the technical skills devised by the respective mentors/artists but also to engage with the larger conceptual questions of how movement, light and narrative gets manifested and has been re-framed and questioned time and again in the society around us.
Additional Evening Lectures by invited artists and curators to further open up these questions and generate collective discussion via the different artistic practices.
Open Day: The sessions are designed in such a way that the outcome of the each session leads toward making of a display. To culminate the process, there will be an Open House event to share and discuss the works and ideas generated by the participants.
