In his essay, Mystery and Inquiry: Reflections on Sonia Mehra Chawla’s ‘Scapelands’, Ranjit Hoskote writes, "'Scapelands’ challenges the pessimism with which the anthropologist Claude Lévi-Strauss regards the possibility of quest in the modern world, on a planet unified but robbed of its mystery by technology... Sonia Mehra Chawla’s prints and video works elude the tourist’s simple categorizations; instead, they record a pilgrim’s encounters with a universe that retains a measure of unfathomable otherness."Read More
The Idea of Art: Perspectives in History This 32-session summer-programme over four-weeks will introduce young students to the different ways in which art is produced and practiced during the various phases of human civilisation. There is no constant value or idea by which art is produced or understood - and the course will discuss some of the approaches in history, the processes of seeing and supporting or exhibiting the visual arts; and broadly review the role that art plays in life, culture, and human society. The course will be structured around four themes - Human Body, Narrative, Space, and Patronage. The themes will be reviewed through some of the classic modes of art historical studies such as Geometry, Form and Medium, ways of Viewing, and the idea of an Audience. This programme aimed largely at young-adults, ages 16-21, is an invitation to engage with the world of visual arts much beyond the four-weeks. The students at the course will view many works of art during the sessions, will discuss and witness arguments around different works, many events, and multiple samples of works; site visits will also be included within the teaching structure. For more information on the program and application procedure, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.Read More
