The Indo-Polish exhibition and residency project “Critical Juncture” explores the concept of critical juncture, which is about those landmark choices made and trajectories preferred by nation-states, institutions, and communities that have a great impact in defining their future processes and courses. The exhibition “Critical Juncture” will begin on the 12th December 2014 in Mattancherry and will be a collateral event of the Kochi-Muziris Biennale 2014. This exhibition will commemorate the 60th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties between India and Poland.
The project is also facilitating a one-week residency program in Kochi for the participating artists planned between 7th and 12th December 2014 aiming to share their practices and to exchange their knowledge about Indian and Polish art. The residency will take place in Four Square Homestay at Fort Kochi.
There is also two-day (15th & 16th December) International Conference and Workshop at Sree Sankaracharya University of Sanskrit, Kalady as part of the project. The first day of the conference will be dedicated to “ Indo-Polish Cultural Connections” aiming to look at the artistic,philosophic, and cultural exchanges between India and Poland of the last sixty years.
