SPACE STUDIO is an independent, not-for-profit organisation dedicated to supporting emerging artists. Founded by Krupa Amin, SPACE STUDIO offers studio space, resources and support to artists to nurture their creative practice. SPACE STUDIO has supported over 250 artists over the years through various creative projects. Along with neighbouring spaces at the Alembic City, SPACE STUDIO hosts residencies, exhibitions, talks, workshops, music concerts and festivals.
Formerly an old distillery plant in the industrial district, Alembic City emerged in 2019 as Baroda’s most thriving cultural hub. Founded by Udit Amin, under the guidance of Shyam Khandekar, the complex was fitted with state-of-the-art infrastructure while carefully preserving the industrial heritage of the space.
Alembic City is home to The Distillery, The Museum, SPACE STUDIO, an outdoor amphitheatre, a skatepark and cafes, all of which are located around Alembic Museum Square and collaboratively host a range of community-focused artistic events.
SPACE STUDIO offers seven spacious artist studios, including one dedicated to printmaking. Each year, they host three to four group residencies, for which artists from around the country are invited to apply. Thematic residencies offer space for artists to push the boundaries of artistic mediums, while independent residencies are crafted for individual needs. SPACE STUDIO'S programming includes mentorship sessions with artists and curators, site visits, inspirational trips, workshops, talks and masterclasses. Each residency ends with an Open Studio where audiences are invited to engage with the art and learn more about the artists and their processes.
