APRE Art House firmly establishes its commitment to the elevation of emerging art practitioners. With this resolute vision, we take privilege in unveiling the fifth edition of our Residency Programme (9th January, 2024- 9th March, 2024).
Mumbai Artists in Residence (MAIR) aims at empowering emerging voices and shaping legacies, nurturing the emerging talent in the realm of Visual art and its intersections.
This programme beckons Visual Artists, Live Artists, and Emerging Curators to journey beyond their known boundaries. Within our vast 10,000 sq. ft. facility in the heart of Mumbai, artists are provided an unparalleled platform to forge collaborations, fostering a tapestry of diverse artistic backgrounds. Over an intensive eight-week span, residents will find themselves immersed in a milieu of intellectual discourse, savoring the vibrant art culture of Mumbai.
The program seeks to enhance meaningful dialogues with the local community. Curated avenues await to sculpt and expand the artistic inclinations of participants through varied modules. The programme is augmented by consistent mentorship and valuable feedback from our Gallery Director, Ms. Jain, and a curated panel of esteemed experts and curators.
