The SSAF Installation Art Grant is premised on the fact that Indian art has been energized since the 1990s by what is broadly termed installation art, but that there is, till today, limited infrastructural and institutional support for such projects. Inaugurating this grant, SSAF offers an abbreviated set of propositions that will, they hope, generate well developed project proposals and a critical discourse before and after the Grant.

The SSAF Installation Art Grant invites applications from artists or artists’ collectives of Indian origin who reside in India. Preference will be given to applicants who have not had adequate opportunities and exposure, who lack access to networks of national and international sponsorships.

The SSAF Installation Art Grant will support an individual artist or an artists’ collective to conceptualize and produce a new work within the parameters of installation art.
