ART at Indian Institute of Technology, Gandhinagar (IITGN) is an initiative that promotes and facilitates artistic expressions and engagements on campus. Art as a medium and practice nurtures liberal, inclusive, interdisciplinary, and futuristic values.

As an artist, not only does it become pertinent to challenge and breach the constraints of conventionality, but also ourselves to evolve into this unfounded newness. With Art@IITGN, we envision an environment which will allow for ingenuity to thrive while simultaneously bridging the transference of intergenerational knowledge systems.

This initiative will provide spaces on campus that enhance and create more avenues for students and community members to experiment with artistic possibilities. The upcoming projects will aim to reimagine the cultural landscape of the IIT Gandhinagar campus and give direction to forms of expressions in a manner that is inclusive, energizing and most importantly, unique in its approach.
