NEW DELHI: School of Arts and Design of Woxsen University in collaboration with University for the Creative Arts (UCA Farnham) in UK has organised a photography exhibition from November 15 to17.
The three-day photography exhibition, hosted at Woxsen University and IIT Hyderabad, garnered participation from photographers, researchers, students, and the broader design community.
The inaugural session at Woxsen University featured a talk on 'Experimental Portraiture Workshop' by Caroline Molloy, programme director of the fine art and photography at UCA Farnham, UK. Day 2 and 3 of the exhibition, hosted at IIT Hyderabad campus was inaugurated by Budaraju Srinivasa Murty, Director of IIT Hyderabad.
This exhibition aims at elicit diverse responses to these themes, fostering a profound understanding of gender roles within a socio-political context. The exhibition delved into the cross-cultural interpretation of societal expectations surrounding 'Gender and Gesture'.
This international collaboration served as a platform for academicians, PhD scholars and design/art practitioners to engage in insightful presentations and discussions on the social narrative of gender and gesture. The project, weaving a narrative across different institutions and cultures, will culminate in sharing its findings at the University for Creative Arts, UK, in Spring 2024.
This exhibition is part of a larger project with key objectives that include establishing cross-cultural collaboration between universities, involving diverse stakeholders to build a robust social context, exploring opportunities for joint publications, and seeking international funding to create more opportunities for students.
Aditya Saxena, dean of the school of arts and design at Woxsen University, said, “This project aims to address a complexity of gender and gesture in a cross cultural context. I am delighted to see the brilliant submission from India and UK.”
