Curatorial Intensive South Asia (CISA), in its third year, is a 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.
Res Artis MENASA (Middle East, North Africa, and South Asia) Cluster Coordinator, Maryam Bagheri, attended the first phase of the fellowship, a two-week intensive programme, at Khoj Studios in New Delhi, India from July 8 to 20. 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, culminating in exhibitions in December 2019.
