The key aim of Shree Goswami, the gallery’s director, has been to seek out emerging artists and showcase them alongside more established Indian and international artists.
The 4000 square feet gallery is located in a renovated century-old metal printing press and its industrial aesthetic lends itself perfectly to exhibiting contemporary art. It has achieved international attention since starting off and many of its artists are in major collections, biennales and museum shows.
It is one of the first galleries in India to push the boundaries with cutting-edge video art, painting, photography, sculpture, and performance. Its desire is to challenge the expectations of contemporary Indian art, and bring in not only national attention, but also cater to an international market. The gallery has been regularly active in external exhibitions such as performance festivals, site-specific events and international art fairs.
Exhibitions over the past years have included artists like Atul Bhalla, Neha Choksi, Baptist Coelho, Monali Meher, Rohini Devasher, Mahesh Baliga, Prajjwal Choudury, Vivan Sundaram, and various group exhibitions of emerging artists from Japan and Central Asia. The last year calendar featured solo shows of Hemali Bhuta, Shreyas Karle; Bharat Sikka and upcoming shows include Bani Abidi and Raqs Media Collective.
Project 88 has taken part in several international art fairs such as Hong Kong Art Fair, Arco Madrid, Art Dubai, Indian Art Summit, and Frieze Art Fair.
It opens from Tuesday to Saturday at 11.00 am to 7.00 pm and on Monday 2.00 pm to 7.00 pm. Closed on Sunday and Public Holidays
