FICA PUBLIC ART GRANT 2011
The Foundation for Indian Contemporary Art invites applications for Public Art Grant 2011.
The Grant is aimed at supporting artists interested in working in the public realm. We welcome proposals for projects with the specific intention of being sited or staged in the public domain. The project can be environmentally focused, community-based, or deal with critical issues related to the visual arts and the public. Through the grant, FICA aims to generate interest in public art projects in India, and mutually engage and initiate an open debate among artists, local communities and the public to look at shared environments in different ways.
The winning proposal will be selected by a distinguished panel of judges. The recipient of the grant will receive a maximum of Rs. 3 lakhs for the project detailed in their application. The period of the grant is one year, starting from 01 January 2012. The artist will be required to document the project and submit the documentation and a report to FICA. The application deadline is September 1, 2011.
