Guild is delighted to announce the opening of its new space at Alibaug,
on the mainland. The
move to Alibaug marks a new chapter in the trajectory of our practice.
Alibaug is an old/new settlement, growing at an accelerating pace, with
a vibrant ecosystem that
straddles the divides of village/town/farmhouse culture.
This will allow us to explore new formats in exhibition
and public engagement.
Located 4 kms from
Mandwa jetty, 20/45 minutes by speed boat/ferry from Gateway of India,
the gallery will occupy 3000 sq ft of exhibition space spread over two
levels and will include a sculpture garden in the spring and fall
months. New programming will include education programs in collaboration
with local schools, and public programs with curators, artists and
academics. With this move The Guild envisions
artistic excellence combined with place-making activities
that will enable deeper artistic connections and interventions in public
spaces and communities.
The inaugural exhibition of The Guild in the new space will open
with a non-commercial exhibition, the 2nd iteration
of its Collection. This exhibition is curated by cultural
theorist, poet and independent curator Ranjit
Hoskote and includes artists Sudhir
Patel, A. Ramachandran, Vivan Sundaram, T. V. Santhosh, Navjot Altaf,
Pooja Iranna, Shadi Ghadirian, Atul Dodiya, Anju Dodiya, Amit Ambalal,
Riyas Komu, Bhupen Khakhar, C. K. Rajan, Gigi Scaria, Jitish Kallat,
Akbar Padamsee, Krishen Khanna, K. G. Subramanyan, Baiju Parthan,
G. R. Iranna, Vidya Kamat, Gulammohammed Sheikh, K. P. Reji, Rakhi
Peswani, Mehlli Gobhai, Himmat Shah.
We look forward to
welcoming you at The Guild, Alibaug.
