Experimenter Gallery is pleased to announce the Experimenter Curators’ Hub on July 27–29, 2017 at the gallery, 2/1 Hindusthan Road, Kolkata, India.

The Hub is structured as a deeply intensive three-day annual program that focuses on developing and sustaining discourse on curatorial practice and exhibition making, through critical discussion and learning. Each year the hub invites some of the foremost in curatorship to present their practice with reference to exhibitions recently curated by them. The audience plays an active role in this exchange and contributes significantly to the conversations. The Experimenter Curators’ Hub was conceptualised and founded in 2010 by Priyanka & Prateek Raja, Directors of Experimenter Gallery.
