Established in 1996, Srishti is a unique space that nurtures emerging creativity and encourages students to explore beyond their boundaries. Every year, Srishti Institute of Art, Design and Technology organizes an Interim session, which offers students the rare opportunity to collaborate and engage in various cutting-edge projects initiated by artists from all over the world. The Interim brings together national and international contemporary artists, designers and practitioners from all around the world to form a highly creative and energetic season of talks, workshops, performances and exhibitions.
Students will work with artists from countries including Switzerland, Germany, Denmark, Ireland, France, India, UK, Sweden, and USA. This year, the artists and students will work on numerous imaginative concepts, all of which involve socially engaging, participatory and innovative artistic practices. They would explore a wide range of themes that include relationships between people and objects, past and future, digital and handmade.
These projects will be spread across Kochi, Goa, Kolkata and Bangalore and exhibited at the Kochi Biennale from 20th December 2016 to 4th January 2017, the Goa Serendipity Art Festival from 15th to 23rd December and at the Venkatappa Art Gallery and Goethe Institute, Bangalore on the 22nd and 23rd of December.
