A new gallery format, unconfined to a single venue

Showcasing contemporary artists with voices we believe in

Beyond the white cube, into the everyday

Making collecting, patronage, and curiosity less daunting

In collaboration with The Equals Project

The original manuscript of the Indian Constitution includes 22 pieces of artwork, one for each section. Intricately sketched, these artworks present a snapshot of civilisational history in the Indian subcontinent. What are those 22 illustrations? Who are the artists? Who did the calligraphy? Why did our first Prime Minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru recommend these artists for such a monumental task? Should we appreciate these illustrations as mere decorative artefacts from a time long gone or do they convey more meaning than that? Does the selection of themes for the illustrations hold the test of time today? We are excited to take you on this journey with us as we discuss: Art and the Constitution.

We are Art and Charlie

We want to change the notional barriers around art, that result in its common perception as intimidating or inaccessible.

Our identity comes from the the etymological battle between Charles, a name popularised by European monarchs and the Germanic noun Karl, representing the free man, which symbolises our efforts towards democratising art.

Breaking away from confines of a singular venue

Like traditional galleries we work with artists and curate exhibits, although we do not believe in being confined to a single venue. We are too used to seeing art in clean white cubed gallery spaces but there is so much potential for art to talk to its surroundings. Once out of a gallery, the artwork never really sees a clinical white space like a gallery again. Choosing artworks to display in venues that are more human, more liveable and more fit for the artwork itself is what we are looking to explore.

Cafes, restaurants, furniture shops, offices, new property developments, warehouses, co-working spaces - we are excited about exploring the potential of all types of spaces.
