About FICA Public Art Grant 2020

Through the Public Art Grant, FICA has remained committed to supporting a diverse spectrum of public art projects, including but not limited to themes such as the histories of social reform and caste-based movements in India, disrupting accepted notions of gender, performance and the body, ecology and traditional knowledge systems in agrarian relationships, and the idea of publics in urban contexts. These art projects have allowed for socially-engaged artists to experiment and explore elements of encounter and exchange at the intersection of site-specificity, activism and spectatorship, participatory art, and collaborative practice. The FICA Public Art Grant has in many ways aided practitioners in creating and disseminating vocabularies on and around art and its relationship with stratas in public places, moving to engender spaces of interaction, belonging, growth and accessibility.

 

The uncertainty and instability brought forth by the year gone by has urged a rethinking and recognition of exigencies in the current moment. We find ourselves with a wealth of occupancies where the tangibility of distance, (im)permanence and new forms of visibility have centered the need to foster adaptability in infrastructure and interaction. FICA has taken this opportunity to contemplate the renewed necessity of systems of support for public art and social re-engagement, keeping with our focus on sustaining and disbursing the Public Art Grant.

 

With the evolving specificity of making, sharing, initiating and communicating in a time of multiple crises, we wish to emphasise the possibilities that reside within the expanding idea of publics today while questioning why and how we catalyse interventions that acknowledge the role of contingency in delimiting definitions of public space. Under the aegis of the grant this year, we would like to underscore a revisiting of modes of developing relationships, fostering collaborations, and thinking through the scope of collectivity in the contemporary moment.

 

The recipient of the grant, decided by an esteemed jury will receive an amount of Rs 3 Lakh for the project detailed in their application. The grant period consists of a mutually decided start and end date, occurring within the span of one year (1 April 2021 to 31 March 2022). Upon completion of the project, the artist or collective will be required to submit a project report along with complete documentation, and make a final presentation at a public forum.
