The artists will be chosen by a select jury that comprises of Shilpa Gupta, Mortimer Chatterjee and Anurag Khanna.

The writers will be selected by jury members: Anupa Mehta and Nancy Adajania.

Shilpa Gupta,  (b. 1976, India) studied at Sir J. J. School of Art (Sculpture). She has had solo shows at Contemporary Arts Center in Cincinnati, OK Center for Contemporary Art in Linz and Arnolfini in Bristol and has participated in biennales in Venice, Berlin, Kochi, Lyon, Gwangju, Havana, Yokohama, Liverpool amongst others. Her work has been shown in Moma, Tate Modern, Centre Pompidou, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New Museum and Mori Museum.

Mortimer Chatterjee, (b. 1975, UK) received his Masters in the History of Indian Art and Architecture from the School of Oriental and African Studies, London. He moved to Mumbai in 2001 while working for British auction house Bowring’s. In 2003, he began Chatterjee & Lal along with his wife. Based in Colaba’s art district of Mumbai, the gallery’s program is now focused both on the work of emerging artists and historical material. In the last ten years the gallery has been witness to groundbreaking shows by artists, such as Rashid Rana, Nikhil Chopra and Hetain Patel. Mortimer’s recent academic projects have included a co-authored publication on the art collection of the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research along with an exhibition of that collection at the National Gallery of Modern Art, Mumbai. He has also been the art consultant for the Taj Group of Hotels for more than 12 years.

Anurag Khanna, was awarded the title of “Young Collector of the Year” by Forbes Art Award India in 2014, the self-taught art enthusiast is one of the few Indian art collectors who collects video art extensively. Anurag has earned the reputation of being quite a risk taker and has become one of the few collectors in India, who has dedicated a significant portion of his collection to experimental practices and video art. Given his relative distance from the artworld in cities like Mumbai and Delhi, his vision seems that much more impressive.

Anupa Mehta, (b. 1965, India) a veteran of the Indian art community, with over two decades of experience in providing strategic inputs to arts projects requiring support vis-a-vis planning, programming, marketing and fund-raising.  She has gestated several institutional and private arts programs and events, and her roster of clients is prestigious and diverse.

Anupa has been a journalist, a magazine and book editor, a columnist, and a gallery owner. She has authored INDIA 20, a book of interviews with Contemporary Indian artists, a novel, The Waiting Room (Penguin, 2007), and a book of short stories titled Unseasonal Rain (Estrade 2014; 2019). .

Nancy Adajania,  (b.  1971, India) is a cultural theorist, art critic and independent curator to start with an introduction to her extensive work. Adajania has written and lectured extensively on contemporary Indian art, especially new media art and its political and cultural contexts, at international venues such as Documenta 11, Kassel; the Zentrum für Kunst und Medientechnologie (ZKM), Karlsruhe; the Neuer Berliner Kunstverein and the Transmediale, Berlin; the Danish Contemporary Art Foundation, Copenhagen; Lottringer 13, Munich, among others. She was the first coordinator of the newly founded crafts research department of the National Centre for the Performing Arts (NCPA), Bombay during 1994–1995, Adajania organised a cycle of symposia and workshops that explored the tension between contemporary art emerging from an urban milieu and the present-day manifestation of the traditional crafts. She was the Editor-in-Chief for Art India from 2000-2002, during which Adajania developed a discursive space singlehandedly, in an Asian context, for emergent new-media and interactive public art practices and social projects on a global level

The call for submissions for the tenth edition of Sculpture in the City is now open for preexisting works that can be exhibited outdoors from May 2020 to May 2021.

The works submitted for consideration need to be suitable for outdoor display and available for display May 2020 to May 2021.  

Deadline for submissions 22nd September 2019

‘Art in a corporate setting has a bad rep. Show me a bank reception and I will show you a daffy, nondescript bronze selected mainly for being studiously uncontroversial. Sculpture in the City, however, is a different affair. Returning for its ninth edition, this large-scale open-air exhibition transforms the Square Mile into a giant sculpture park. And the best bit is that the art on show is genuinely worth seeing. […] All works 21 works are a pleasingly disruptive addition to the slick City landscape.’  Rosemary Waugh, Time Out

Transitions and Displacements

Eligibility:

TRANSITIONS AND DISPLACEMENTS Call for Exhibition

Accepted media: Photography, Digital Graphic, Digital Visual Design
Take part in the Group Exhibition in Berlin or Rome city. April 2020

Transitions and displacements are the objects of reflection for our call. The concept of the two terms is a recall to the "liquid" vision of contemporary philosophy. Transitions, displacements, mutations of condition are the prerogatives of a fluid approach to reality, prerogatives of a free change in the state of things that allows full organic adherence to the environment and to the context in which each subject / object is immersed .
The works that will take part in the exhibition will represent an excursus on the subject, addressed both from a physical, chemical and biological poin of view and from a social, cultural and political one.
