Mandalay Hall Kochi’s very own Art Hotel

Nestled in the cobbled by-lanes of Mattancherry, Mandalay Hall is a 200-year-old landmark building, which now operates as a luxury hotel in the once residential Jewish quarters. Inspired by the history and beauty of the heritage structure, the hotel is crafted with an unforgettable experience bridging Kochi’s past and present. It hosts immersive installations created by different artists who are invited by a chosen curator. This year, the Vol.2 of the residency is curated by internationally acclaimed artist Bose Krishnamachari, and features talented young Malayalee artists such as Anju Acharya and Dibin Thilakan.

The installations in the rooms are site-specific and temporal, lasting only for two years, after which a new set of artists and designers take-over the space. The Mandalay Hall Art Residency Vol. 1 hosted a stellar line-up of emerging and established national and international talent that included Giuseppe Stampone, Jigesh Kumar, Kartik Sood, Katyayini Gargi and Mithra Kamalam.
