Here, There and Everywhere is an artistic collaboration between India and the UK, showcasing the finest contemporary art practices across two unique cultures. The diverse and in-depth programme launches this January in Mumbai and culminates in March 2018.

Through a series of exhibitions, projects, and residencies, Here, There and Everywhere looks beyond the surface to artistically explore what independence and autonomy really mean.

Indian partners include: Art India, Chatterjee & Lal, Heritage Hotel Art Spaces, Mumbai Art Room, What About Art?, Indian Memory Archive, Quicksand, Unbox, Jaaga.
