It was established in October 2010 as a curatorial collaborative concerned with ideas of freedom.
Each of the founders at some point or another criss-crossed and worked together at the CSMVS museum in Mumbai. They would walk across the museum to this beautiful old building, under which they used to talk, imagining the changes they felt were pressing. That beautiful, decrepit building was called Clark House, from which they took our name, and from where their projects are based.
Currently Clark House showcases Neo Dyanamisms a stunning solo debut by Naresh Kumar.
