ARK is the result of a vision
A vision for a futuristic hub in Vadodara for art, culture, and business
ARK promotes the art of NOW. Our collections are from all walks of art. That which is influenced by varied cultural perspectives, different socio-economic and political point of views and also art that fuels critical dialogue, collaboration and public engagement. While doing so, we bring together contemporaries from all sections, opening doors to young and old art enthusiasts alike, all with the drive to be engaged in the thoughtful pursuit of art.
