India Art Fair 2014

Spread over four days from 30 January (Preview Day) – 2 February 2014. 
Showcasing 91 booths from India and across the world, the 6th edition of the India Art Fair will be a key impetus within the commercial art world, exposing local and international artists to a large and diverse audience. With an exciting public programme which includes Art Projects, a Speakers’ Forum and a city wide Collateral Events schedule, the India Art Fair continues to be a highlight of India’s busy cultural season. The India Art Fair remains unchallenged as the most important platform for facilitating dialogue exchange and trade in the region. The 47 Indian galleries which will be exhibiting during the 6th edition, will be showcasing a breadth of modern and contemporary art practices including painting, sculpture, new media, installation and performance art. This year’s international galleries represent a dynamic mix, from returning European galleries, to a number of cutting edge newcomers, who all share the common goal to explore the Indian art market, forge key relationships and meet new collectors from South Asia.
In addition to the participation of leading and emerging contemporary galleries, an extensive Art Projects programme spanning the outdoor and indoor fair space will be a big focus of the fair this year, presenting a range of work from high profile Indian and international artists. Highlights of the programme include Listen Up! - the first public sound art project to be launched in India. Curated by Tim Goossens and Diana Campbell Betancourt and supported by 1after320 art projects, it is a city-wide installation to make sound art publicly accessible through cellular phones. Among the rich selection of other participators, artist Dayanita Singh will present excerpts from her critically acclaimed File Room series, which has been shown this year at the Venice
Biennale and the Hayward Gallery, London. Jose Garcia Miguel (Perve Galeria, Portugal) will showcase a multi-arts installation Tears of Portugal encompassing video, photography and performance.
