Hampi Art Labs announces its next call for visual artists from India to apply.

Residency Dates: 7th Oct to 27th Dec 2024
Deadline: 11th July 2024

Launched in February 2024, Hampi Art Labs is an arts centre near the UNESCO World Heritage Site Hampi in the south of India. Evolving from a legacy of supporting art and heritage in India for over 30 years and founded by Sangita Jindal and her daughter Tarini Jindal Handa, Hampi Art Labs is an initiative of the JSW Foundation – the social development arm of the JSW Group, one of India’s leading business houses.

The facility spans 9 acres of landscape and comprises exhibition spaces, studios, and apartments for residencies, gardens, and a café.
The centre offers artists unique production facilities, an environment to retreat in creatively and galleries for world-class display.

Production facilities include workshops for printmaking, ceramics, and new media. Here, artists can learn from the region’s richly replete craft culture and distinctive traditions and techniques. JSW Vijayanagar Works is the largest state-of-the-art single-location steel manufacturing unit in India and its proximity to Hampi Art Labs will also afford artists an unparalleled opportunity to work on a large scale and with specialized equipment.
