About us

Dotwalk Ajitara Art Residency is the flagship collaboration initiated by Gallery Dotwalk. The one-of-a-kind residency, located in the sprawling farmhouse of the Ajitara family, offers the most conducive environment to engage in artistic pursuits, away from all the chaos of the city. The residency provides dedicated studio spaces, co-working spaces, spacious bedrooms, a recreation room with audio and video facilities, a library, and a fully functional kitchen with pre-fixed menus. Dotwalk Ajitara Art Residency offers curated residency modules with various outreach programmes and unlike many residencies, the creative outputs lead to curated annual exhibitions.

Dotwalk Ajitara Art Residency aims to create a space that brings together diverse individuals and disciplines, fostering artistic exploration, education and community. We strive to inspire and empower all who enter our doors while promoting cultural understanding and embracing innovation. Our core principles include celebrating diversity in the arts, encouraging creative growth, facilitating collaborative exchange and promoting an environment of openness and progress, focusing specifically on contemporary painting and drawing practices.

Transient Terrains 2024-25

Summer Illumination 2 Month Program

15th May -14th July 2024

In this two month residency, Summer Illuminations, artists will mainly focus on the language of light in artistic practice. The play of light, the luminescence of cosmic entities, the clarity of atmosphere and the intensity of bright shimmering rays inspire the thematics of our first batch.

Hosted in a creatively nurturing environment the artists-in-residence will develop peer to peer exchange on the conceptual aspects of capturing atmosphere and ambience in paintings and drawings. To enhance their technical and conceptual understanding DAAR will facilitate one-on-one mentorship sessions with established artists, film screenings, artist presentations, guided tours and immersive experiences in the surrounding natural landscapes.
