Guild Art Gallery


Established in 1997, The Guild focuses on discovering, promoting and exhibiting emerging and mid-career artists. The gallery provides a platform for discursive practices, innovation and experimentation. The Guild functions as a semi-institutional space. We believe in promoting critical and rigorous practices and ideas and our programming reflects this critical practice, and includes along with exhibitions, film screenings, artists’ workshops, studio workshops, panels and talks. We also continue to produce and publish artists’ books – Navjot Altaf, Sudhir Patwardhan, K. G. Subramanyan, A. Ramachandran – as well as high quality catalogues.

Our artists have participated in significant museum exhibitions and biennales most notably at the Tate Modern, the Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art in Oslo, the Herning Kunstmuseum in Denmark, the MAXXI National Museum in Rome, the Zacheta National Gallery in Warsaw, the Newark Museum, the Centre Pompidou, the Frost Art Museum in Florida, the Fourth Moscow Biennale, the Venice Biennale, the Musee d’arte Contemporain de Lyon in France and at the Sydney Biennale in Australia. These artists have been critically acclaimed in various art journals, magazines and newspapers.

Lastly, since 2010, the gallery has been actively exhibiting international artists in India at its space in Mumbai as well as at art fairs – Charwei Tsai from Taiwan (solo), Shadi Ghadirian from Iran (solo), along with artists Shirin Neshat, Barbad Golshiri, Farideh Lashai, Mitra Tabrizian, Johan Grimonprez, Renata Poljak, Raed Yasin, Munira Al Solh, Khaled Hafez in group exhibitions.
