Sunapranta

Sunaparanta is a non for profit art institution, which aims to preserve the artistic
legacies of Goa; to encourage and promote innovative work in the visual arts,
performance and art education. It serves as a bridge between the Goan arts, the
national as well as international art communities. The institution provides working
and exhibition space, assistance with exchange and grant funding initiatives, artist
residencies, and infrastructure for collaborative projects with state, national and
international organizations.

The Emerging Artists Mentoring Program is an initiative by Sunaparanta to
encourage, support and promote innovative and experimental projects in the visual
arts, and to provide resource support to art students and artists of the coming
generations.

This collaboration with KMB aligns Sunaparanta not only with its mission, but also
mutually supports each other to infiltrate (contemporary) art and culture within local
cities and the youth of this generation. This particular project proposed by us
supports our Emerging Artists Mentoring Program, an initiative by the Art Center to
encourage, support and promote innovative and experimental projects in the visual
arts, and to provide resource support to art students and artists of the coming
generations.

About the Artists

Mansoor Ali is an artist based in Baroda, India. He uses ready-made and found objects
such as the chairs in this work, and by altering their pre-conceived configuration,
proportion and context, the artist creates sculptures and installations that draw
attention to the various facets of power politics prevalent in India. Mansoor is
represented by Gallery Maskara, Mumbai.

Pallavi Paul is an artist based in Mumbai. Her primary interest lies in taking ‘found
situations’ and reconfiguring them to present fantastical possibilities. She expresses
this concept through drawing, photography, video and sculptural installations. She is
represented by Project 88 in Mumbai.

Rathin Barman is an artist based in Tripura, India. He studies how economic and
environmental structures in both urban and rural settings have been transformed due
to globalization, commenting on a growing dependence on metro areas and the
subsequent growth of material consumption in society. He has exhibited extensively
across the world and is represented by Experimenter, Kolakata.
