Art Scribes Award 2021 - ifIndia

Encouraging curatorial narratives between France & India

The Prameya Art Foundation, in collaboration with the French Institute in India, is launching the 8th edition of the Art Scribes Award. Designed as an annual art writer’s award, the program supports emerging/mid-career art writers of Indian origin who have been practising consistently and have published their well-researched critical writing.

Art Scribes Award 2021-2022

For the Art Scribes Award 2021-2022, the jury is composed of 5 eminent personalities: Sophie Makariou (President of the National Museum of Asian Arts – Guimet), Sylvain Lizon (Director of Villa Arson, France, Vice-president for Culture and Society, Université Côte d’Azur, France), Aveek Sen (Independent Writer, Teacher, and Collaborator in the Arts), Hemant Sareen (Writer and Editor) and Nancy Adajania (Culture Theorist & Independent Curator).

The recipient will be awarded a one-month residency at Chateau La Napoule, the residency space of the La Napoule Art Foundation. Their research and writing during this time will ultimately lead to an exhibition curated by them in New Delhi at the Shrine Empire Gallery.

Residency costs including flights to France, accommodation, visa expenses and per diem will be covered on behalf of the resident.
