We are curating an online exhibition of art works produced in the form of paintings, photographs, video, installation, sculpture, drawing, digital, animation, text etc in response to current Kashmir Crisis.
The exhibition will go live on www.gallerie1.com on 1st September 2016.
If you wish to be a part of the online exhibition send your entries to firstname.lastname@example.org
Project Reclaim is an initiative by Kashmir Art Quest that aims to use arts as a medium of promoting awareness about the importance of taking ownership of public spaces and infrastructure. We wish to inspire responsibility and duty towards what essentially belongs to the people – public parks, sports arenas, roads, educational institutions, and so on. For years, a lot of such public property has been either lying vacant – gathering dust, or is underused, or used for other things such as accommodating security forces.
Kashmir Art Quest will invite artists to beautify and create artworks in the form of installations, murals, sculpture and graffiti in such public spaces with an aim to involve the local communities and encourage the use of such infrastructure for public good.

Bakhshi Stadium, Srinagar.
More information soon.
Through this residency we wish to encourage research, dialogue and collaboration – while at the same time support artists’ careers by strengthening their practice. Each shortlisted applicant based outside Kashmir will work with their Kashmiri counterpart. Each group will explore traditional practices by local craftsmen and incorporate it in their collaborative work, formally or conceptually. By the end of the residency, each group will have created two installations which can later be placed in open public spaces. The artist will therefore be dealing with the geographic, social, political, and cultural sensitivities in Kashmir.
We will provide a fully furnished 25 sq.meter Bedroom with an en-suite washroom to each resident.
