Jawahar Kala Kendra in collaboration with the Contemporary Clay Foundation presents the first Indian Ceramics Triennale: Breaking Ground, from 31 August to 18 November 2018. An Artist-Led Initiative, Breaking Ground, the first iteration of the Indian Ceramics Triennale has been conceived and driven by a six-member core team of mid-career ceramic artists – Anjani Khanna, Madhvi Subrahmanian, Neha Kudchadkar, Sharbani Das Gupta, Reyaz Badaruddin & Vineet Kacker.
Breaking Ground responds to the expansion in ceramic art in India and abroad and the idea of representing ceramics in a broader contemporary context. The artist projects for this edition explore themes of scale, site specificity and/or concept through installation, interaction, technology and performance.
The Indian Ceramics Triennale and British Ceramics Biennial invited proposals from artists interested in undertaking a reciprocal residency as part of the British Ceramics Biennial, Stoke-on-Trent, UK in August/September 2019 and participating as an artist in the Biennial Festival which is on view from September 28th to November 10th, 2019.
