India Foundation for the Arts (IFA), in collaboration with Asia Art Archive, invites applications for one Archival Fellowship for a period of 8–10 months to support creative practitioners—curators, artists, designers, film-makers, art historians, programmers—to work with the material in AAA’s digital archive, partially accessible online and fully available on site in Delhi and Hong Kong. The intention is to give applicants the opportunity to engage with the archive in innovative and original ways culminating in a tangible outcome such as an exhibition, film, web-design, publication, etc., at the end of 10 months in April 2016.
IFA’s Archival Fellowships have been initiated with the two-fold objective of providing creative practitioners with an opportunity to generate new, critical, and creative approaches to public engagement with archives while energising archives as spaces for dialogue and discourse.
