Founded in 2010 by Saloni Doshi, "Space118" provides studios on a short-term basis (1–2 months) 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 in different fields of art practice. We hope to nurture the interdisciplinary impetus for collaboration and collective exchange. It will also be possible for artists to interact with a range of institutions (scientific, industrial and artistic) based in Mumbai or to simply use their studio term as a playful engagement with the city and its landscape. Located in the heart of industrial Bombay, a 15 minute drive from Kala Ghoda and the art district in Colaba, artists are able to experience the rich and cultural art 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."
