FAQs - Contemporary Art Practice

Our intention is to stimulate individual artistic journeys with a range of learning units that cover a wide gamut of the contemporary art practices. The learning units keep in mind both the contemporary theoretical discourses in art, as well as active studio practice.  This includes, but is not limited to, traditional studio and exhibition practices, but extends to live contexts and public sites as well. The program shapes the force that makes an artist through dynamic interactions with practicing artists and other faculty from a very wide range of disciplines. We encourage an interdisciplinary approach towards the practice of arts.

Besides a career in the arts you can work for galleries, museums and arts organizations. You can consider curation, art writing, artistic direction or freelance works in the creative industries.

There are no dedicated studio spaces for individual students; however, there are many specialized workshops such as carpentry, weaving, silk-screen printing etc, and work studio’s and desk spaces.  Students are encouraged to work collaboratively and to do site specific work too.  All the campuses have wi-fi and Srishti has an extensive library for reference. You will be responsible for acquiring your own materials.
