Gallery and Shop (The Space)

Location


ARTISANS’ is part of the intimate community of independent cultural enterprises housed in the lovingly restored historic buildings of Kala Ghoda’s backstreets. Buzzing with boutiques, galleries, and restaurants, Kala Ghoda has emerged as an arts district and a prominent cultural centre - a fine example of the regeneration of a place to nurture a cultural economy.

ARTISANS ’dramatic square structure culminates in a high pyramidal roof and looks out onto the historic nineteenth-century blue synagogue.

The Gallery


Our 800 square foot open plan space can accommodate up to 100 people and is a wonderful environment for debates, seminars, lectures, films, book launches, and workshops. The multifunctional space has state-of-the-art air conditioning, lighting, sound, and audiovisual systems. Our space is also available for hire for select private and corporate events, including workshops.

The Gallery Shop


Our handpicked, handmade pieces have a permanent place year-round. With fine objects arriving regularly, a visit to the Gallery Shop is an adventure. Find the perfect handmade-in-India gift, enhance your collection, or treat yourself to something new!


The History


The Kala Ghoda building that houses ARTISANS’ is part of the Parekh family heritage. Faced with the risk of losing it, Radhi Parekh returned to Mumbai to establish a gallery dedicated to reviving and promoting Indian handicraft and design. Through founding ARTISANS’, Parekh also sought to contribute to the preservation and reanimation of Kala Ghoda’s historic inner streets, challenging the gentrification of much of Mumbai. Even as vibrant and quirky cafes, restaurants and boutiques continue to fill the area, ARTISANS’ grand square structure, pyramidal roof, and the one-of-a-kind mural by Sameer Kulavoor continue to set this building apart
