Komal Jain_portrait.png

Hi, I am Komal Jain, an artist and designer-researcher based in India.

My practice lies at the intersection of art, science and political ecology with a focus on gender and sexuality. I am currently working as an Associate Curator for the Living Lightly exhibition at Centre for Pastoralism. 

I recently curated and produced an exhibition called Ever Met an 'Ugly' Flower? Exhibition at Archives at NCBS.

Being media agnostic, I primarily work on exhibitions, museum interpretation and public engagement based design projects. With three plus years of experience of working with cultural spaces and corporate companies, I have engaged with research and design projects across the stages of strategy development, funding, participatory programmes, and execution.
