Residency Dates
  • Jun 1st 2018 to Jun 30th 2018

Based in Vadodara (Baroda) in India, curator
and art historian Sandhya Bordewekar Gajjar (b. 1957) has spent the last
thirty-five years researching and writing about the work of artists from the
region. She is especially interested in young, emerging talented artists of
promise, especially those from small-town India. Baroda’s vibrant artistic
community is due, in part, to the presence of the prestigious Baroda Art
School, which is an institution of choice for many aspiring artists. Baroda
also offers an affordable, peaceful environment for struggling artists who
often make it their home after they finish art school. Gajjar is contributing
correspondent from Baroda for such art magazines as Art India, Art & Deal,
The Indian Contemporary Art Journal, Nigaah, and Art etc. She has also written for The Times of India, The
Indian Express
, The Sunday Observer and the Economic Times.  In addition
to art writing, Gajjar has also curated a number of art exhibitions in India
and the UK.

This Residency is sponsored
by Art Forum San Francisco, a not for profit that strives to define and promote
all art forms emerging from South Asia.
