Art gallery and performance space in the heart of 

Mumbai's creative consciousness

Art and Charlie Culture House

71A Pali Village, Bandra

Welcome to Art and Charlie

We are committed to exploring what lies beyond the white cube. 


We started as a nomadic gallery that curated shows at different venues across Mumbai, and grew to showcase at Mumbai Gallery Weekend in 2020 alongside more-established art houses. During the pandemic, we pivoted to a fully virtual art platform, and are now transitioning to a gallery space in the heart of Mumbai’s creative consciousness. 


Set to open to the public on the 7th of October, our new space in Bandra will showcase exciting contemporary visual artists from across India around the year, as well as experiential interactions.

'Dasht-gard', a solo exhibition by Shad Fatima

Curated by Ayesha Parikh

n. Dasht-gard - wanderer, lover, madman

We are all wanderers looking for our place in an interdependent world. Presenting two distinct bodies of work, Shad Fatima asks us to contemplate the pluralistic nature of identity and the delicate interconnectedness of human existence.

Shad begins by unveiling a series of portraits and ceramic sculptures that embody the vulnerability, strength and defiance of a Dasht-gard. These characters exist in a realm beyond reality, where identity flourishes by resisting definition. Drawn in by this new world, the viewer is then presented with a series of monochrome landscapes, where nuanced greys encapsulate the often overlooked interdependencies that shape our lives. It is within these subtleties that meaning and purpose emerge, reminding us of our kindred human experience.

We are all wandering mad men here. May you carry the Dasht-gard’s insights with you as you navigate the intricacies of your own wanderings in life.
