This National art Camp is curated by Prof. Ajaya Kumar, Dean – School of Visual Arts, World School of Design and Prof. Abhimanue, College of Arts, Delhi.
The concept of space has always been an area of creative┬áencounter ever since the origination of images in human life. The persistence, enunciation and manifestations of space is the┬áessential┬áforce of all the visual and non-visual expressions┬áthroughout the ages. It is also┬ávery significant to note that┬áthe post modern French philosopher Jacques Derrida did redefine┬áall the Visual┬áand Performing Arts as Spatial Arts. Space plays a vital role in the physical and metaphysical forms of human existence. Unexplored Spaces┬áis curatorial┬áproject which proposes artists to liberally interpret their own creative endeavours’ in┬áart┬áwith┬áspecific importance to the tangible practice of painting.
