Most applications from Madhya Pradesh show a strong inclination towards representational art and an interest in engaging with the personal and social in everyday life.

This workshop module initially generates discussions and facilitates the development of mutual critique, followed by guidance on students’ individual practices. Throughout these sessions, students are introduced to other artists’ work from across generations and geographies, through short slide presentations.

In the second phase of the workshop students arrive at a common set of ideas around which they could work as a collective. As students come with varied skill sets ranging from painting, photography, video and installation, the final outcome is governed as much by the basic premise of the collective as by an understanding and mutual harnessing of each other’s capacities.
