The residency was hosted in dedicated online platform empowered with an explicitly designed digital interface, which enabled the artists to work on their individual projects and also engage, collaborate and interact with several local experts, resource persons and artists during the days of residency period. For the resident artist, the wide range of categorised and diverse materials stored in the residency website – texts, images, audio, video, conversations and artistic multimedia works on and about the city worked as a repository; it was to facilitate and invite them to explore, experience, imagine and perceive, and interpret a labyrinthine city, that is Kolkata.
As the residency draws to a close, the closing programme will include the launching of an online exhibition of the artworks by the five resident artists. The artists will also be present at the inaugural event to introduce their works and talking about the process of developing and giving shape to their creative idea.
The exhibition will remain on view online till 31. January 2022.
This project is support by EUNIC Global and executed by Goethe-Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan Kolkata, Alliance Française du Bengale, Institut français en Inde, British Council, Kolkata. Consolato Generale d'Italia in Kolkata, Istituto Italiano di Cultura in New Delhi and CIMA.
