A new year has started and for sure 2017 will bring new and exciting opportunities to see good Indian contemporary art and meet many interesting people engaged in developing and promoting Indian art throughout the world.
The year will start with a bang when the India Art Fair takes place in New Delhi 2. – 5. February 2017. The Art Fair was founded in 2008 to provide increased visibility for India's art scene and the emerging Indian art market. This year, India Art Fair is expanding its programming to reflect South Asia’s immense diversity in the visual arts. The Art Fair will too provide a platform for artistic and cultural innovation across disciplines and allow exchange throughout the region and the world. Attendance figures have grown to over 300,000 visitors, making India Art Fair one of the most widely engaging fairs in the world.
You still have the opportunity to see the Kochi-Muziris Biennale , India, closing on March 29 th.
However, you don’t have to travel so far – at least if you live in Europe – to see contemporary India art. Roskilde Art Association in Denmark will show a selection of my collection and include the latest works of Sunanda Khajuria and Dhaneshwar Shah. Both artists have lived in China for some years. The exhibition will run from 21. January to 19. February 2017. Some of the works at the exhibition will be for sale.
At the exhibition it will also be possible to see and buy my book “My One Hundred and One Works of Contemporary Indian Art”. The Indian Ambassador in Denmark Rajeev Shahare had said about the book: “Delightful – pure labour of love”.
