An Empty Factory
An Immersive Experience.
An anti art-fair for independent artists to foster a dialogue that transcends prescribed
geographies, hierarchies, and markets. Creating an alternative space for the irregular
arts, for the weird and the bizarre.
Aiming to create a cultural community amongst all genres of art and culture and for inventing new ones. We seek to present new artists in spaces that were not originally created for an art exhibition and to display their art in ways that are not usually meant for displaying.
To challenge the traditional cultural landscape of the art market.
To activate spaces that would not normally be used to show art
By having low cost exhibition spaces and low cost entry for art patrons, public and practitioners alike we aim to widen the arts audience in India and broaden the dialogue of what constitutes value and economy in the 21 st century
To give independent artists and curators the freedom to express themselves in any way they deem fit
Providing an audience to artists working on the fringe of the established art world.
To build our own art market with our own rules.
Makers and doers of all kinds
ALL ARE WELCOME
We have ample wall space, floor space and ceiling space. Our aim is to try and take things of the wall and to make you expand your art practice to make the whole room your own, convert it into a site specific installation, a performance space, a bedroom, a bathroom, a book.
