This program connects South Asia’s artists with Harvard faculty and students to support research that advances the understanding of social, political, cultural, and economic issues of the world through art.

Made possible by the Dean of the Division of Social Science’s Donald T. Regan Lecture Fund and the Arts Advisory Council, the Visiting Artist Program brings emerging artists from South Asia to Harvard’s campus to engage with Harvard students, faculty, and community members. The program allows the Harvard community to engage with artists of diverse backgrounds, whose work in various mediums address social, economic, and political issues in South Asia. During their time on campus, artists attend courses, meet with student groups, give a lecture, and display their work.

Faculty Directors:

Jinah Kim, Gardner Cowles Associate Professor of History of Art & Architecture, Harvard University

Doris SommerIra Jewell Williams, Jr. Professor of Romance Languages and Literature, and Director of Graduate Studies in Spanish, Harvard University

The SAI Arts Initiative is made possible by generous funding from the Donald T. Regan Lecture fund.
