FICA Reading Room
D 42 Defence Colony, New Delhi
FICA invites you to be part of a workshop on drawing with artist Gagan Singh as part of our series Open Forum. The focus of the workshop will be to look at sketching and the act of drawing in a sketchbook.
In this workshop Gagan wishes to extend his art practice as a dialogue with students, artists and art educators. He will take the participants through different exercises during the day, which will include making sketchbooks of different sizes and materials. He will then guide the participants through the various themes that people enjoy drawing about. The session will culminate into a sharing of ideas about the different participant’s works.
We will provide the participants with the drawing material for the workshop but feel free to carry your own materials.
Participation Limited. To apply, write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Gagan Singh studied Fine Arts in the UK and has exhibited in various group shows including the Sarai Reader 09 at the Devi Art Foundation, Delhi, 2012 – 2013. His work seamlessly flows between the categories of the autobiographical to erotic and humorous. In his drawings, humor acts as a point of access through which other issues, often more serious, are explored by the artist. He is the recipient of Indian Foundation for the Art’s Extended Arts Practice Grant and had a solo exhibition in Chatterjee and Lal Gallery, Mumbai in 2014. In 2015, he was part of the exhibition Activating Space: A Sculptural Inquiry, at KHOJ Studios.
