Curatorial Intensive South Asia 2017

Curatorial Intensive South Asia (CISA) is a fellowship for young curators from South Asia. The program aims to develop a diversity of perspectives on the medium of the exhibition to provide a structured and an experimental inquiry into the possibilities of curatorial practice today. CISA aims to support creative thinking by building an infrastructure for making and exhibiting contemporary art.
