Anupam is a doctoral student at the School of Art in the Art and Visual Culture Education program. He is an interdisciplinary, socially engaged artist and educator from Mumbai, India. He holds a B.V.A in printmaking from Rabindra Bharati University, an M.F.A in printmaking from the Maharaja Sayajirao University of Baroda, and a second M.F.A in Art+Social Practice from Portland State University. He is the founder of the Council for Arts and Social Practice (CASP), an arts-based non-profit in India. With more than 20 years in art practice and teaching, Anupam’s commitment to socially engaged art allows him to investigate the possibilities of artistic pedagogy in various social contexts. His interdisciplinary collective approach to artmaking aims at critically expanding our understanding of art and its modalities, while also questioning the hegemony that the art world sustains. His research is grounded in the idea of mutualism and how that speaks to the symbiotic framework of socially engaged art. He is interested in postcolonialism, transculturalism, and the decolonization of art history and education. Anupam enjoys playing and listening to music, traveling, camping, and cooking.
