Description

From a previous space in Mumbaï (Altamount road), in 1997, Geetha Mehra mooved the Sakshi Art Gallery to an industrial space, in Parel precint. The earlier space had reached its limits of growth and the activities was limited. Getha who also has another Gallery in Madras had ideas on developing a whole range of art related activities like library, a workshop, a café, etc. that together under one roof would make a quantum leap for Sakshi Art Gallery. The mill shed had to be preserved and architect Rahul Mehhrotta was the perfect choice for that. The awesome volume of industrial space makes a perfect setting for Sakshi’s multi faceted activities.
