ARK is the result of a vision
A vision for a futuristic hub in Vadodara for art, culture, and business
Gallery Ark is the culmination of a vision to shape the contemporary art narrative. With the aim to create curated art experiences, we push the boundaries of established definitions; of what is expected and familiar. This space has the flexibility to make 'the greats' more accessible while it also provides emerging artists with a platform. We do this with integrity towards the community and a passion for artistic enrichment.
The building uses the premise of tense chaos and suspended imbalance to denote stillness as an allegorical reference to life today. Walter, the much loved artist from Ahmedabad, later took over the building to used it as his autobiographical sketchbook using concrete, boulders, and wire mesh as his graphite. And just like that the building became his canvas.
