THE LOFT is a space for creative interaction, national and international residencies, curatorial projects and a source for quality art. Each year, THE LOFT offers 4 international residencies and 4 studio sessions for Indian artists, besides inviting 4 curators to present an exhibition based on ongoing concerns.
A panel comprising eminent collectors, established artists, and critic-curators recommends artists and curators for THE LOFT's annual programme. The nominations for 2009-2010 were made by Anupam Poddar, Sangita Jindal, Jitish Kallat, Sudarshan Shetty, Priya Pall and Anupa Mehta.
THE LOFT residency allows artists/curators the space to work in an oasis in the heart of Mumbai city.
Works created through engagements here are sold directly to a discerning clientele. Anupa Mehta assists clients with collection building and provides art advisory services. She also undertakes commissions on behalf of artists. THE LOFT also represents artists in keeping with its own curatorial mandate.
Art awareness sessions, encounters with artists, loft theatre, workshops and other events are part of its alternate USP
