‘3 Sentences On The Curatorial’, 2014

In September 2014 Outset India supported the collaborative exhibition project 3 sentences on the curatorial as part I of the series Professionals in Art and Curation presented by PRACforum.??Conceived and structured by ten curators, 3 sentences on the curatorial consisted of multiple subsets of reflections and collisions in their practices. The exercise was positioned as an encounter with the self, with exhibition space, and with curatorial practices. Each curator selected and responded to the others’ propositions, quotes or proposed objects, texts, artists and artworks.

The participating curators were Akansha Rastogi, Anannya Mehtta, Julia Libertad, Rahul Bhattacharya, Mayank Mansingh Kaul, Meera Menezes, Priya Pall, Siddhartha Chatterjee, Pramod Kumar, Heidi Fichtner, and Amit Kumar Jain.??The exhibition featured work by Arturo Hernández Alcázar, Atul Bhalla, Eka Archiving projects, Harun Farocki, Manmeet Devgun, Mansoor Ali, Mayank Mansingh Kaul, Natalia Ludmila, Rana Begum, Raqs Media Collective, Ruchin Soni, Shaheen Ahmed + Moumita Ghosh, Sujit Mallik, Vidisha Saini + Poornima Sardana, and Wala.

The exhibition project received further funding from the Goethe Institute, Gujral Foundation, and FICA.??
