Clark House Initiative, Bombay is a curatorial practice about a place, which in sharing a junction with two museums and a cinema, mirrors the fictions of what these spaces could be. Clark House is also an old antique storage, and shipping office of the Thakur Shipping Company that had links to countries in the Middle East, Eastern Europe and Japan. Curatorial interventions hope to continue, differently, this history of internationalism, experiment and research. It was established in 2010 as a curatorial collaborative concerned with ideas of freedom.

Sumesh Sharma is a curator of the Clark House Initiative in Bombay. His practice is informed by cultural perspectives of political and economic history. Histories of communities in India, language religion and politics in Francophone Africa, and immigrant identities in Europe, form part of his research. He was part of the second edition of the Gwangju Biennale International Curators Programme 2010 in South Korea. In 2011 he curated the 5th Ayodhya Film Festival, Simon Liddiment, Published in Dissent Pune, and co-curated the Studio of AA Raiba and Padmini Chettur - Untitled Exhibition # 1.
