Working with the Tasveer Gallery, Cara’s director provided the content-development, project-management, exhibition and book design for the travelling exhibition, A Journey Through Asia, by one of the world’s most respected landscape photographers, Michael Kenna. The project took audiences across the landscapes of India, Thailand, Vietnam, China, South Korea, and Japan. Describing the places he photographs as old friends, from the Huangshan Mountains in China to the backwaters of Kerala, Kenna’s photographs are infused with quietness and offer a place of contemplation. The ethos for the design and delivery of this project was to provide a visual language and tone which was quiet, respectful and clean, to allow the subtleties of the work to breathe in the often crowded cities in which the exhibitions took place.
The MAP Academy is a ground-breaking initiative to transform the approach to teaching and sharing knowledge surrounding the history of art in India. One of Cara Consulting’s most ambitious and long-term projects to date, we have been involved right from the inception of the project, which we manage end-to-end. In addition to researching and writing a comprehensive curriculum for the arts, which is delivered through rich media content online, we’re also developing an online encyclopedia as well as interactive timelines, bibliographies, glossaries and resource databases for students, educators and scholars. Working with various partners and collaborators, our role includes everything from branding, research, content development, design and development, as well as overseeing the work of the team, partnerships, sustainability of the project and its scalability.
