Our Vision Space 118 aims to nurture the interdisciplinary impetus of global art practitioners through creative workshops and residencies for experimentation in the visual arts and art making in Bombay. Our Mission We provide the opportunity for artists to interact with a range of institutions (scientific, industrial and cultural) based in Mumbai or to simply use their studio term as a playful engagement with the city and its landscape in order to build a sustainable art ecosystem in India. Our Values • Experimentation • Openness • Experience • Collaboration
Founded in 2010, Space118 provides studios and residencies on a short-term basis (1 month) to artists as part of its commitment to supporting emerging art practitioners from all parts of the country and the world. We are looking at a diverse group of artists working in the studios to create a lively, supportive and dynamic working environment. We aim to foster the exchange of ideas and experiences amongst artists who work across different fields of art. Located in the heart of industrial Bombay, in a warehousing compound, a 15 minute drive from Kala Ghoda and the art district in Colaba, artists have the freedom to experience the rich art and cultural scene on a daily basis. We encourage artists to have the freedom to develop their work at their own pace and interpret the studio term from their own perspective.
