About Us

Founded in 2009, 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.

Owing to the pandemic and keeping up with the changing times, we are now a Grant-Making Organisation, still fervently motivated to provide opportunities for emerging artists!  The recipient for the Space118 Fine Arts Grant-2021 will be chosen by an esteemed jury panel including Lekha Poddar-Collector, Mortimer Chatterjee-Gallerist and Curator and Shilpa Gupta-Artist.
