Applications Open for Sher-Gil Sundaram Arts Foundation: Installation Art Grant 2019

Deadline: 20 March 2019

The Sher-Gil Sundaram Arts Foundation (SSAF) is seeking applications for its new project grant in 2019: the SSAF Installation Art Grant.

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.

Funding Information

  • The duration of the grant is 18 months.
  • The comprehensive grant amount is INR 8 lakhs, extendable to INR 10 lakhs.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Individuals of Indian origin residing in India, or collectives whose members are Indian nationals residing in India
  • Artists who currently do not have a grant or a residency where the proposed project has been developed


  • The project must be located in India. Location details, if the project is site-specific, need to be specified in the proposal.
  • The project should be within the parameters of installation art.
  • The proposal should include as much information about the project as possible, enabling us to gain greater clarity about the potential and practicality of the project. Please read through the application form and the checklist at the end of the form carefully for what is required for submission.
  • The project should be feasible in terms of costs and scale, and should meet the dates set in the timeline by the artist.
