Our attempt will be to exhibit art that attempts to connect with the contemporary with a greater feel for differences, foregrounding practices that try to engage with traditions of dissent and active reformulations that redraw the parameters of the possible. In this, we will try to question and interrogate present day hierarchies and preferences, and to provide alternatives that are rooted in the micro-politics of the region. We will also actively try to ensure the participation of artists from varied sections of people, and to highlight art that is contemplative as well as cutting- edge. The gallery will also try to provide space for various programs related to art with a view to strengthen the discourses of and around art within the country. « less

Functioning from a 400 year old Dutch building, this shop has seen it all; from the sleepy one horse town that Fort Cochin once was to the bustling tourist spot that is today. Though the streets and surroundings have witnessed umpteen changes, Indian Industries by and large remains the same. It’s a store where time has not spoilt nor changed things despite the sea of change seen all around. Shopping is never a hassle or a chore here, but on the contrary a pleasure, as one can browse leisurely. Our visitors' book and press write ups bear testimony to the rave reviews we have received through the years from those who have visited us.The shops sells silver, stone, white metal and camel bone jewelery; wooden and brass figures; cloth paper machie, laq and leather hangings; life like rose wood elephants; antique finish goods; bell metal and brass wares; furniture and screen; bags, purses and pouches, wooden toys, souvenirs, trinkets and lots more. « less
