In late 2005, a small group of lecturers from UniSA’s South Australian School of Art, Adelaide Centre for the Arts, and Adelaide Central School of Art, undertook studio residencies at the Sanskriti Kendra in New Delhi, India. This exhibition presented works made whilst the artists were in India and upon their return to Adelaide, in response to an intense period of cultural and creative exchange.
