Residency Programme since: 2001
Description of Organisation:

Space 118 provides five studios, located in south Bombay, on a short-term basis (1-2 months) to artists for creative study and research as part of its commitment to supporting emerging art practitioners from all parts of the country and the world. Situated in south central Mumbai, it is within close proximity to the artists district in Colaba and the art fraternity at large.

We are looking at a diverse group of artists working in the studios to create a lively, supportive and dynamic work environment. We aim to foster the exchange of ideas and experiences amongst artists who work in different fields of art practice. In exchange for their enriching time in our studios, artists are required to grant an artwork either created during their studio practice or from previous collections. These artworks are catalogued and exhibited periodically to generate funds for the sustainability and maintenance of the space. Artists can choose to apply either for the studio practice only, or for studio and accommodation.
