Studio Next is a non-profit arts organization founded to promote alternative contemporary art practice and a platform of alternative art education. It is an artist run organization with Studio, exhibition space, projection room, local artisan accesses that supports the open exchange of ideas.

Artist-run art creative spaces have long been key-players in the contemporary art ecosystem. We offer an essential counterpoint to the commercial sector…. commercial sectors where experimentation sometimes takes a backseat to producing salable works.
Studio next seeks to contribute to positive social change through collaborations between Indian and international artists, as well as galvanise greater community involvement in sustainable change…… Studio Next offer a creative dialogical space. A portal to rethink perceptions of culture, nature and socio-political implication of art. Faced with serious environmental, social, political and health challenges, we need to develop another understanding of the world and of the self. The current (visual) idiom is incited to develop a deeper understanding that includes human and non-human narratives.
