Ancient to Contemporary Sculptures ( An Online Course)￼

Introducing the Ancient to Contemporary Sculptures Course (Online)
Duration: 6th to 28th August
Alongside organising drawing and painting classes, and workshops on pottery and printmaking, over the last three years KCC has been successfully running art appreciation courses both online and at the centre for junior as well as senior participants. However, this year we wish to curate courses for art enthusiasts and students that will encourage them to engage discursively with certain modes of art-making while interacting with renowned practitioners and scholars. Our first in the series is on Indian sculptures, from the Ancient to the Contemporary with preeminent sculptors K S Radhakrishnan and L N Tallur, and renowned scholars like Prof. Jayaram Poduval and Prof. Parul Pandya Dhar as the facilitators.
This course would hark back to the memories of sculptures one had seen in their school’s history textbooks and provide the skill sets required to appreciate them as works of art and to understand their evolution as cultural symbols. In the Indian context, modern to the contemporary period itself has illustrious sculptors like Ramkinkar Baij, Somnath Hore, Sankho Chaudhuri, Mrinalini Mukherjee, Meera Mukherjee, Himmat Shah, K. P. Krishnakumar, Kanayi Kunhiraman, KS Radhakrishnan, Dhruva Mistry, Subodh Gupta, Bharti Kher, Shilpa Gupta, LN Tallur, N. N. Rimzon, Anish Kapoor among others. Their contribution has been immense. What did they learn/ absorb/ appropriate from the past or how did they break free and strike new paths?
This course aims to help the learners understand this evolution of sculptures from ancient to contemporary times while equipping them to better appreciate the same.
Early Bird Fee will be available for those who apply by 25th July EOD.
Application Deadline: 5th August.
