Over the past several years, the Institute has built a comprehensive art program and promoted conversation around the visual cultures of South Asia through talks, conferences, and exhibitions.
With the inauguration of the South Asia Art Initiative, we are excited to move onto the next level with local, national, and international collaborations that combine creative energies with insights drawn from scholarly research. As we continue to shape the Initiative, we are eager to share our vision with you and to plan the future collaboratively. By way of setting this in motion, we have organized a day-long symposium titled Bay Area Conversations: The Arts of South Asia and its Diasporas on October 26, 2018, in part to celebrate what we see as a new beginning and in part to find points of intersections.
Please join us for a day of conversations at the Institute for South Asia Studies with art historians, curators, and artists in the Bay Area.
