Seagull ART

Seagull curates and presents art exhibitions—major retrospectives by senior artists as well as the so-called 'non-saleable' aspect or area of an artist's work, which commercial galleries are reluctant to exhibit. Intervening qualitatively and making a positive difference to the aesthetics of the exhibition, the entire undertaking is a partnership between the artist and the organization.

Seagull Books (estd 1982) has been crafting books with an eye to both exceptional content and radical design. What began as an instinctive and highly risky business of publishing books—books on theatre, visual arts, alternative cinema, philosophy, culture—continues to be a passionately felt need of the hour: manuscripts that need to see the light of day, to reach a readership, to stimulate minds, to change outlooks.

Seagull Theatre Quarterly

The only one of its kind thatre journal, STQ—published between 1994 - 2003—approached theatre and performance as a social phenomenon rooted in and growing out of specific cultural and historical contexts. In keeping with this, STQ places a strong emphasis on generating original material and in retrieving and preserving oral histories of workers and performers, of indigenous performing traditions as well as 'modern' theatre, through in-depth first-person accounts.
