DOT Art Gallery, an initiative by DOT School of Design aims to provide a space and time for artists both from within and outside of the institution. DOT Art Gallery is founded to exhibit and support art, design, workshops and lectures. Over the years, the Gallery aims to grow into a nationally and internationally recognized space that presents consistently acclaimed exhibitions, lectures, workshops and artist commissions that prioritize interpretative reflection and critical inquiry and engage multiple communities.
Our exhibitions and programs would present a broad range of art works, both traditional and contemporary, with aesthetic concerns that would bring together the artist community, students, critics and general public under one roof, as we believe building this network of artists and a space to showcase their work would contribute to the empowerment of contemporary artists in Chennai city. This initiative also helps the upcoming artists to express their dissent without worrying about the boundaries of arts.

Art is boundless, we don't want to fit the idea of a gallery in a white cube, we open it up to possibilities. We explore places for our exhibits and make it accessible to everyone. Therefore the dot art gallery will actively position its exhibitions, workshops and public programs as transformational experiences, as opportunities with which to build community, as avenues for learning as it would be a platform for aspiring art students. Our programs will ignite intellectual curiosity and creative innovation, and empower students to expand the boundaries of what is possible, making an impact on the world.
