A space to collaborate, create and grow.
Interaction, experiment, caring, thinking, managing, suspense, challenge, are the keywords of Collaborative Art Space. Started in July 2021 as the second wave of the pandemic came to its end, Collaborative Art Space is the brainchild of artist Malavika Mandal Andrew, a postgraduate in Fine Arts from Kala Bhavana, Visva Bharati University, a Pollock-Krasner Grant awardee and the first Indian artist to be listed in the Techspressionist Artist Index. The idea of collaborative art space was born out of a collaboration with artist Davonte Bradley, the idea that while our physical bodies remains static, confined in the four walls of our home, our art has the ability to travel across the globe, reach places and corners that seem impossible.
The first project undertaken by Collaborative Art Space, Two Zero Two One, is an exploration of the same by creating a collaboration opportunity for artists around the world.
The second project New Day, New Year, New Month aims to foster the skills and ideas of budding student artists by providing them with their first taste of creating collaborative artworks. Young artists will learn how to adjust, explore and create with each other.
