A particular highlight of the Season will be in the week of 19th-23rd November, where we host three leading practitioners from India, talking about their work within the current art and design fields in the subcontinent:
Ishan Khosla is a designer based in New Delhi, working across a range of design disciplines. He has been described as one of the 100 Best Contemporary Graphic Designers in the world by Charlotte and Peter Fiell in their book, New Graphic Design. As well as his highly regarded commercial work, Ishan has been exploring the digital future of traditional crafts and arts in India, working with rural communities to fuse their cultural heritage with modern technology to produce innovative ways of exploring their work in a digital form.
Rahaab Allana is the curator of the Alkazi Foundation for the Arts in New Delhi, Fellow of the Royal Asiatic Society in London, and Governing Committee member of the Alliance Française in New Delhi. Rahaab is also the editor of India’s first Photography Quarterly, Pix, and will address the development of India’s current scene in photography and curation, how new photographers are choosing to show their world in still image.
Charuvi Agrawal is an animator and artist based in New Delhi, who is currently working in 3D and VR animation. While her commercial practice is pushing at the boundaries of current VR animation, she also creates award winning contemporary art installations, which combine imposing scale with painstaking small details in execution. Charuvi will discuss her current work, which shows how new artistic voices are beginning to be heard in Indian animation, a field which has until now worked more as a service industry to Western productions.
