The Mool Foundation is an interactive platform for visual and applied arts. A space that hopes to provide opportunities to artists to showcase their work, interact with their peers, teach their craft and draw inspiration from others. A space that provides opportunities for the public to participate and engage with the evolving world of visual and applied arts.

The series of exhibitions, lectures, workshops and panel discussions organized by the Mool foundation hope to create unique opportunities for visitors to view, experience, discuss, and interpret innovative as well as historic art and design ideas and practices.

A visitor to the foundation can expect to participate in diverse programs and exhibitions in ceramics, drawing, painting, sculpture, printmaking, design, crafts, photography, video, architecture, industrial design, graphic design, interior design and decorative art.

The name ‘Mool’ is a living tribute to Late Mr. Y. K. Bhatt. As an architect, planner, artist, sculptor, photographer, traveller and a thinker, his life and work displayed an uncanny ability of always getting to the fundamental (root) issues around any problem, idea, thought or action. ‘Mool’ is a Hindi word that roughly translates to root, essence, fundamental and basic.
