india art fair

Last month saw the 12th edition of the India Art Fair hosted in New Delhi, as South Asia’s largest fair, IAF proved the continued world-wide growth and success of the continent’s contemporary artists. With over eighty-one exhibitors, more than any other year, the fair attracted visitors from around the globe – whether they be seasoned collectors, international gallery directors or first-time buyers.

Featuring works by Bharti Kher, Tanya Goel and Girjesh Kumar Singh, the fair flourished with a diverse mix of female and male artists of all ages, some well-established and others new to the art scene. India’s most renowned galleries including New Dehli’s Nature Morte and Mumbai’s Chatterjee & Lal exhibited and sold a vast array of art from painting to sculpture and more. IAF also hosted a unique performance programme which featured Nigerian artist Jellili Atiku and recent performer at the 2019 Venice Biennale, Piyali Ghosh.

The fair’s rule stating that 70% of the fair’s floor space is given to Indian galleries selling South Asian art allows for galleries from India’s secondary city’s to gain recognition by international collectors, showcasing the regional artists they manage. IAF takes pride in being a regional as opposed to an international Art Fair, celebrating the talent of India’s contemporary artists.
