On 16th March 2019, 10 artists from all over the world will conclude the first edition (2018-19) of SquareWorks Laboratory (SqW:Lab) in an open studio in Mumbai.

SqW:Lab is an international creative fellowship that began in 2018 in Mumbai and expanded globally throughout 2019. The inaugural 10 fellows are a mix of artists, architects, curators, art writers and creative industry professionals from India, Japan, Hong Kong, UK, USA and Brazil.

“Continuous professional practice accumulates specific knowledge. But it tends to be mundane and requires resetting new challenges. The idea of the lab starts from this points and re-thinking creative environment. 80 years old Bombay art deco apartment is the place all ten professionals gather for an initial short-term workshop.
It is intriguing to imagine how we could rearrange domestic space into a creative and collaborative space”

Katsushi Goto, Squareworks founder, March 2019
