    A Mumbai-based gallery specialising in contemporary art practice with a focus on experimental forms, Project 88 was launched in 2006 by Sree Goswami as an independent extension of Galerie 88, Kolkata, which was begun by Goswami’s mother in 1988.

    Goswami joined the Mumbai outpost of Galerie 88 after receiving a diploma in Contemporary Art from the Sotheby’s Institute, London. Between 2002 and 2006, she bought a century-old space in Colaba, Mumbai, that was formerly a printing press and refurbished it as a gallery along with architect Rahul Mehrotra.

    The gallery has platformed experimental artists while also focusing on emerging art practices, attending to young and mid-career artists working across mixed-media formats, including installation, sculpture, video and digital. The gallery regularly participates in art fairs, shows and exhibitions within India and abroad, such as the India Art Fair, Art Dubai, Hong Kong Art Fair and Dhaka Art Summit.

    Among the artists that the gallery represents include Raqs Media Collective, the Otolith Group, Desire Machine Collective, Prajakta Potnis, Tejal Shah, Neha Choksi, Hemali Singh Soin, Baptist Coelho, Goutam Ghosh, Rohini Devasher and Shreyas Karle.
