    Projects
    The most active artists this summer have been from India,
    where we had the celebrated 'Translations - Kolkata' exhibition last February.

     

    'Saudade', the journey of a clown symbolically representing the journey to self-discovery and self-knowledge,
    by Darshan Singh Grewal

     

    'The Life of Temporary Shops', a project highlighting the overlooked and humble reality of street vendors in the university town of Santiniketan,
    by Sarika Kumari

     

    'Gods and Crimes Scenes': by manipulating stills from a surrealist Swedish movie and images of Indian deities, Arpan Ghosh creates images playing with the absurd.





    'Scribble it Down' shifts from visual collaboration to the world of music and sound with 'Sonorous'. Eight artists from eight different countries participated in this intriguing project, created by Hagai Izenberg and Einat Moglad

    Along with the 'Series' related to the projects above, this page also features Sheila Rodriguez (Spain), Raka Panda (India), Eros Dibra (Albania), Yassine Chouati (Morocco), Prithwish Daw (India) and Gladys Kalichini (Zambia).

  • May 2016 – Newsletter

     

    Newsletter, May 2016
    The Indian edition of 'TRANSLATIONS'  brought together the works of 20 young artists from 15 different countries with the works of 24 young artists from Kolkata, where the exhibition took place.
    Together, these works created a striking
     international exhibition, a visual conversation across language barriers, demonstrating that art knows no borders.

    Queens, New York
    "My goal is to illustrate the tension between comfort and discomfort that I associate with home by creating spaces that I feel also evoke this tension..." In the interview, Kim explains what drew her to paint architectural spaces and what 'home' means to her.
