"Hampi Art Labs marks the next chapter in JSW Foundation’s legacy of supporting the arts ecosystem in India. It will be a major contribution to arts infrastructure and production facilities in the country and a cultural destination for both local and international visitors. I have had a great affinity for the ancient city of Hampi since I first visited it in 1983 and I am delighted to be now able to connect contemporary art with heritage and nature. The project is also inspired by my mother Urmila Kanoria who founded one of the first residency programs in India at the Kanoria Centre for Arts in Ahmedabad in 1984"

“Hampi Art Labs is an inclusive artist-first centre that encourages a cross-disciplinary approach to art-making and driving engagement with the region’s heritage and artisanal legacy alongside India’s contemporary art scene. We are delighted to have collaborated with Sameep Padora, one of India’s most successful young architects, on the design for Hampi Art Labs. His poetic style of architecture reflects the spiritual energy Hampi is known for.”
