Uniting art enthusiasts, connoisseurs, and artists, The Art of India exhibition is an initiative to make art more accessible and democratic by showcasing a collection of over 150 artworks by a diverse group of Indian artists. The second edition of the show features an amalgam of art forms from some of the most well-known contemporary Indian artists across the country and overseas. More than 100 Indian artists will display their works as part of the prestigious 2023 edition of the show, which will take place in New Delhi at the Bikaner House from 7th to 13th April 2023.
The edition is curated by Dr. Tarana Khubchandani, Director of Gallery Art & Soul, and mentored by known artist Brinda Miller, who brings her immense knowledge of Indian art to enhance curation. With Inclusion & Diversity as its theme, the second edition of The Art of India is a relevant, unique amalgamation of some of the best works from different regions of the country.
The impressive line-up includes living artists and those who have passed away but left a great impact with their work. From the powerful vibrancy of Sujata Bajaj’s abstracted gestures to the late Akbar Padamsee’s pointillistic works; from Sheetal Gattani’s earthy textured paintings with a minimalistic vocabulary to Bose Krishnamachari’s unrivalled Ghost series. Featuring artworks of artists spanning eight decades, The Art of India show highlights prominent Bengal Masters, as well as pays an ode to the artists who laid the foundation and substratum at a time when Indian art was still nascent. Akbar Padamsee, Ambadas, C.N. Karunakaran, Jeram Patel, Jai Zharotia, Prabhakar Barwe, Rabin Mondal, Ram Kumar, and Vasant Wankhede, are some of those masters who passed but formed their unique identities and left their indelible imprints on the History of Indian Art.
With paintings, sculptural works in different media, hand-woven art carpets, video projections, 3D walkthroughs, and an array of workshops, the show brings Indian art to the centre stage of the cultural landscape. It allows art lovers of every genre to connect and collect.
