RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP OPEN STUDIO IN MUMBAI
OPEN TO PUBLIC 16th MARCH 2019
On 16th March 2019, 10 artists from all over the world concluded the first edition (2018-19) of SquareWorks Laboratory (SqW:Lab) in an open studio in Mumbai.
This concluding event consisted of work made during the three-month fellowship. Each artist was asked to complete a series of ‘Play Projects’ devised by the five core members – a postcard exchange by Vishwa Shroff; Tash Kahn asked fellows to respond to city scenes; Katsushi Goto prompted collaboration between fellows to create a narrative around a fictional architectural space; Charlie Levine’s ‘explored her project, ‘The Tale Tellers’ in which artists were asked to illustrate a piece of text from The Jungle Book; Rosanna van Mierlo’s project concerns the public/private space and the notion of home.
SqW:Lab is an international creative fellowship that began in 2018 in Mumbai and expanded globally throughout 2019. The inaugural 10 fellows were a mix of artists, architects, curators, art writers and creative industry professionals from India, Japan, Hong Kong, UK, USA and Brazil.
