The Itinerant Illustrator. Interim Semester, 2014–2015

On the 18th and 19th December 2014 the 5th International Illustration Research event took place in Bangalore, India. Hosted by Srishti School of Art, Design and Technology, this symposium and the accompanying exhibition focused on the praxis of illustration in an expanded field, including histories of local/ regional illustrative practices and the traversing of diverse media platforms. The exhibition was the first of its kind in India and showcased a range of projects and practices by illustrators from several countries.

In this project, students worked as an interdisciplinary team that included space designers, product designers, visual communicators, design managers and text editors. Facilitated by Sandeep Ashwath, Alison Byrnes and me, the task was to conceptualise the space design and visual identity for the event as well as put together a cohesive, professional and engaging exhibition of contemporary illustration. The project began with an immersion into the various thematic strands of the symposium. Students then created proposals and work plans for developing the exhibition display style, space layout and improvements, murals, event identity, banners and signage, exhibition brochure, speaker programme, conference kit, pop-up shops, event promotion and documentation. Aside from these mandatory deliverables the students also developed personal projects that responded to the overarching themes of the symposium.

Students: Shuchi N Bellare, Antara Bhargava, Shruti Bhatnagar, Sukanya Bose, Vipasha Chauhan, Pragya Gupta, Thanik Jaganath, Arunima Jain, Priyanka Jain, Rupika Joshi, Harini Kannan, Juhi Kedia, Yash Sanjay Khataokar, Shelton Lobo, Shubhika Dilip Malara, Mohavi Mohandas, Shweta Shirish Mulekar, Madhav Nair, Soumya Mittal, Antra Kaushika Nair, Sachi Khemchand Patil, Deepa Rodrigues, Gnanaeshwar Srinivas Radhamani, Natasha Mamta Sharma, Tanya Singh, Nimisha Singhal, Kritika Trehan, Aditi Verma, Kristel Marina Viegas, Rae Miriam Zachariah

The Itinerant Illustrator – 18th and 19th December 2014

This symposium is the 5th International Illustration Research event and will be hosted by Srishti School of Art, Design and Technology. It is organized in collaboration with the peer reviewed Journal of Illustration, Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU) and Cardiff School of Art and Design (CSAD). The symposium this year will focus on the praxis of illustration in an expanded field, including histories of local/regional illustrative practices and the traversing of diverse media platforms.

The two-day event will feature talks and presentations from selected academic and practicing illustrators and artists from several countries. Through talks, workshops, performances and exhibited works, we will consider the illustrator in terms of the ‘habitual travelling’ that he or she undertakes. The itinerant nature of the illustrator is evident in the praxis of illustration itself- the oscillation of thought between word and image, page and screen, hand and eye, dream and reality. The nomadic nature of the illustrator is to wander between disciplines, search for new contexts and to make images not on one, but several different platforms within an eternal evolution of technologies.

The symposium is accompanied by an exhibition curated by Alison Byrnes, Anna Bhushan and Matt Lee that showcases work of contemporary illustrators working in diverse media forms.
