Critical Zones Open Call

“Critical Zones. In Search of a Common Ground is a traveling exhibition that invites visitors to engage with the critical situation of the Earth in a novel and diverse way, and to explore new modes of coexistence between all forms of life. It invokes the ongoing climate emergency as a result of planet wide global warming, not to create a state of despair and lamentation, but to act as a catalyst for thoughtful, creative and imaginative responses through artistic practice, cultural action and critical inquiry. The exhibition features the work of leading international contemporary artists whose work provides stimulating, provocative and thoughtful ways into thinking with the climate question.

Three (3) artists will be chosen by a jury of eminent artists and curators to become interlocutors to the next edition of Critical Zones. In Search of Common Ground, in Delhi from 3rd February – 9th March, 2024.

  • Applicants are invited to sketch out a realistic, practical, and workable idea in no more than one A4 Page, accompanied by a CV,
  • An illustrated survey of not more than 3 of their recent works as a pdf,
  • A short statement of artistic purpose.
  • If necessary, artists may also furnish drawings of how they see their work exhibited.
  • The SOP should not exceed one A4 Page and can be in English or in Hindi.”
