Curatorial Intensive South Asia 2017

Curatorial Intensive South Asia (CISA), is a new fellowship for young curators from South Asia. The program aims to develop a diversity of perspectives on the medium of the exhibition and to provide both a structured and an experimental inquiry into the possibilities of curatorial practice today. CISA aims to support creative thinking by building an institutional infrastructure for making and exhibiting Contemporary Art.

The first phase of the fellowship was a two-week intensive programme at Khoj Studios from July 1st – 15th 2017.  In the second phase the fellows will have the opportunity to independently develop curatorial projects over a period of six months during which they will be mentored by the programme leaders.

The inaugural CISA fellows are Akanksha Maglani, Imaad Majeed (Sri Lanka), Karan Talwar, Kritika Mudgal, Liz Fernando (Sri Lanka), Malini Kochupillai, Premjish Achari, Shaunak Mahbubani, Vidishi Saini, Zeenat Nagri and Zihaan Karim (Bangladesh).

The programme is led by Dr. Benjamin Meyer-Krahmer (Professor, Institute of Theory, HGB Leipzig) and Dr. Kavita Singh (Professor, School of Arts and Aesthetics, JNU).
