VISUAL ARTS

Our Visual Arts programme aims at presenting exceptional examples of work across the following art forms:

  • Painting
  • Ceramic
  • Sculpture
  • Craft

The focus, while selecting the programmes that we present, is on the contemporary re-working of tradition and the resultant continuing relevance of such tradition in the contemporary world.

Our current programme works at four levels:
  • - Presentation of exhibitions from Korea in India.
  • - Development and presentation of Indo-Korean exhibitions in India and Korea, with curators from both countries selecting artists/artistic works from each country.
  • - Indo-Korean creative residencies to share best practices and develop new work in India and Korea.
  • - Specialist skill-development workshops in India and Korea and publication of workshop findings for further dissemination to relevant artistic groups.
All our Visual Arts programmes are developed in consultation and with support from relevant partners in India and Korea.
