Working for and supported by the Japan Foundation, New Delhi, and Tasveer Arts, we produced a survey exhibition and print publication aimed towards celebrating and contextualising the work of six Japanese photographers at the cutting edge of the medium today. Taking the Japanese word for light—Hikari—as its starting point, the project was an exploration of how this is interpreted and used as an artistic tool by different cultures, and in doing so, asked broader questions about universalism and cultural identity in the arts. Our work included the conceptualisation of the exhibition and the project management, working closely with the co-curator Shio Kito, as well as various partner institutions and galleries.

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.
