The Space118 Contemporaries residency provides emerging artists and writers from across India with an opportunity for exchange and dialogue. It aims to provide young artists and writers,  a forum for experimentation and interaction with the larger creative community, and attempts to create a network of diverse artists across mediums and disciplines.

To mark the 10 years of Space118, we have decided to launch the Space118 Contemporaries 2020, which will be one of the  new age programmes in our roster. Functioning as a unique residency model that closely curates artists at the start of their professional careers. The Space118 Contemporaries 2020 is populated with artists’ visits and interactions, studio visits and curated exhibition walkthroughs for the winner to have a gamut of art-related experiences and exposure. The aim of the Space118 Contemporaries is to provide infrastructure, inspiration and mentorship to emerging artists and art practices in Mumbai city.

The Space118 Contemporaries 2020 residency ends with an Open Day, where resident artists show their works in progress and interact with audiences. The Open Studio day is a great learning opportunity for young artists to showcase their own practice and get valuable feedback and criticism from their peers, colleagues, senior art practitioners, art critics and the public at large.

The artists will be chosen by a select jury that comprises of Shilpa Gupta, Mortimer Chatterjee and Anurag Khanna.

The writers will be selected by jury members: Anupa Mehta and Nancy Adajania.

Shilpa Gupta,  (b. 1976, India) studied at Sir J. J. School of Art (Sculpture). She has had solo shows at Contemporary Arts Center in Cincinnati, OK Center for Contemporary Art in Linz and Arnolfini in Bristol and has participated in biennales in Venice, Berlin, Kochi, Lyon, Gwangju, Havana, Yokohama, Liverpool amongst others. Her work has been shown in Moma, Tate Modern, Centre Pompidou, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New Museum and Mori Museum.

Mortimer Chatterjee, (b. 1975, UK) received his Masters in the History of Indian Art and Architecture from the School of Oriental and African Studies, London. He moved to Mumbai in 2001 while working for British auction house Bowring’s. In 2003, he began Chatterjee & Lal along with his wife. Based in Colaba’s art district of Mumbai, the gallery’s program is now focused both on the work of emerging artists and historical material. In the last ten years the gallery has been witness to groundbreaking shows by artists, such as Rashid Rana, Nikhil Chopra and Hetain Patel. Mortimer’s recent academic projects have included a co-authored publication on the art collection of the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research along with an exhibition of that collection at the National Gallery of Modern Art, Mumbai. He has also been the art consultant for the Taj Group of Hotels for more than 12 years.

Anurag Khanna, was awarded the title of “Young Collector of the Year” by Forbes Art Award India in 2014, the self-taught art enthusiast is one of the few Indian art collectors who collects video art extensively. Anurag has earned the reputation of being quite a risk taker and has become one of the few collectors in India, who has dedicated a significant portion of his collection to experimental practices and video art. Given his relative distance from the artworld in cities like Mumbai and Delhi, his vision seems that much more impressive.

Anupa Mehta, (b. 1965, India) a veteran of the Indian art community, with over two decades of experience in providing strategic inputs to arts projects requiring support vis-a-vis planning, programming, marketing and fund-raising.  She has gestated several institutional and private arts programs and events, and her roster of clients is prestigious and diverse.

A graduate in English Literature, Anupa holds a Masters degree in Narrative Therapy & Community work from the University of Melbourne. She is certified in counseling protocol from Spring Counseling, Mumbai, and has trained in story-telling with an emphasis on cross-cultural psychology, with Jungian writer and analyst, Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes. Anupa has been a journalist, a magazine and book editor, a columnist, and a gallery owner. She has authored INDIA 20, a book of interviews with Contemporary Indian artists, a novel, The Waiting Room (Penguin, 2007), and a book of short stories titled Unseasonal Rain (Estrade 2014; 2019). .

Nancy Adajania,  (b.  1971, India) is a cultural theorist, art critic and independent curator to start with an introduction to her extensive work. Adajania has written and lectured extensively on contemporary Indian art, especially new media art and its political and cultural contexts, at international venues such as Documenta 11, Kassel; the Zentrum für Kunst und Medientechnologie (ZKM), Karlsruhe; the Neuer Berliner Kunstverein and the Transmediale, Berlin; the Danish Contemporary Art Foundation, Copenhagen; Lottringer 13, Munich, among others. She was the first coordinator of the newly founded crafts research department of the National Centre for the Performing Arts (NCPA), Bombay during 1994–1995, Adajania organised a cycle of symposia and workshops that explored the tension between contemporary art emerging from an urban milieu and the present-day manifestation of the traditional crafts. She was the Editor-in-Chief for Art India from 2000-2002, during which Adajania developed a discursive space singlehandedly, in an Asian context, for emergent new-media and interactive public art practices and social projects on a global level
