Open Forum | Workshop on Drawing by Gagan Singh

22 June 2015 | 11 am to 6 pm
FICA Reading Room
D 42 Defence Colony, New Delhi

FICA invites you to be part of a workshop on drawing with artist Gagan Singh. This is the first interaction as part of our series Open Forum - the focus of the workshop will be to look at sketching and the act of drawing in a sketchbook.

In this workshop Gagan wishes to extend his art practice as a dialogue with students, artists and art educators. He will take the participants through different exercises during the day, which will include making sketchbooks of different sizes and materials. He will then guide the participants through the various themes that people enjoy drawing about. The session will culminate into a sharing of ideas about the different participant's works.

Gagan Singh studied fine art in the UK and has exhibited in various group shows including the Sarai Reader 09 at the Devi Art Foundation, Delhi, 2012 – 2013. The content of the work falls into two broad categories, the autobiographical and the erotic. In both cases, humour acts as a point of access through which other issues, often more serious, are explored by the artist. He is the recipient of Indian Foundation for  the Art's Extended Arts Practice Grant and had a solo exhibition in Chatterjee and Lal Gallery, Mumbai in 2014. The key ideas to his art practice are a fascination about drawing.
