NID Photography Design Exchange Exhibition

10-03-2015

National Institute of Design is delighted to announce the opening of HAVE SOME TEA: Intercontinental Drift, a collective photography exhibition of 13 emerging photographers’ work as part of the exchange collaboration between Photography Design, National Institute of Design (NID) and University for the Creative Arts (UCA), Farnham, the UK.

The collaboration between NID and UCA Farnham dates back to 2008, when a memorandum of understanding was formalised to initiate the first student exchange between the two institutes. This collaboration has waxed and waned over the years depending upon the shifts in policies, course leaders, availability of funds and redefined scope of mutual activities.

One core element that has remained constant throughout is the learning and professional development of students and faculty who have benefited out of this exchange. This learning has happened not just in the classrooms, or darkrooms, but also to a great extent in the new environments of the partner institute. This constant renegotiation of ‘familiar’ and the ‘other’ stretches the confines of conditioned beliefs, thereby allowing more room for enquiry, acceptance, interaction, and production.

The current collaboration between NID and UCA for 2013 and 14, supported by UK India Education and Research Initiative (UKIERI) is concluding with this exhibition of selected works of students, who were part of student exchange in 2013 and 14. The exhibition opens at NID Gandhinagar campus on 12th March 2015 and will remain on view till 30th April 2015.

Opening & Special Screening: 12th March 2015, 5.00 pm

Exhibition continues: 13th March to 30th April 2015

Venue: National Institute of Design, P. G. campus, Gandhinagar

Timings: Monday to Friday, 10 am to 5.30 pm
