ART CENTRIX PAINTING GRANT 2024
About ART CENTRIX GRANTS
Art Centrix Grants is a new vertical, conceived by Art Centrix Space to open opportunities to support young artists of our country. Art Centrix Grants aims to develop artistic research, production, and exhibitions through process-driven approaches. As a gallery, Art Centrix Space has been dedicated to nurturing contemporary artistic thought, keeping the future of art in India in mind with rigorous program-driven discourses, and curatorial interventions to strengthen the ecosystem of contemporary art at both national and international levels. Our gallery’s core focus is to actively engage and represent regions and voice vernacular and regional concerns. Acknowledging the significance of working together in a post pandemic world, ACS Grants will forge valuable collaborations between artists, institutions, patrons and mentors to help develop a support system for visual art practitioners both for conceptual thinking and production work. Through this initiative, we aim to support artists in the initial phase of their careers. We will allocate annual grants dedicated to particular medium-focused practices for every edition, fostering a broader spectrum of diversity, and providing timely support for various medium-based practices.
