About the workshop
CONA had an exciting 1st week of July in 2014 with a four day workshop by Aveek Sen. The workshop titled, "What We Talk About When We Talk About Art: Conversations around looking, making and thinking", was a series of discussions around the making and reception of art, and the relationship between these processes and the structures of experience. The discussions were both, free-wheeling and rigorous. They were structured around specific works of literature, cinema and music, for which no prior technical knowledge of any of these media was required.
The process for applying for the workshops was to send CV, a short account of the area of practice, a portfolio of their body of works and the reason for enrolling for a particular workshop via email.
CONA Foundation is thankful to FICA (Foundation for Indian Contemporary Art) for it's support towards this workshop.
