About the Fair
Founded in 2008 in New Delhi, India Art Fair is a platform to sustain the artistic aspirations of the city with the opportunity it deserves. It is a significant event for the arts in the region, attracting artists, curators, gallery owners, collectors, museum directors, art enthusiasts and extensive media from around the world. Over its six editions, the art fair has shown in excess of 400 galleries and 4000 artists, highlighting its contribution to the promotion of art among a range of stakeholders and across the subcontinent.
The art fair has an extensive schedule that includes a comprehensive series of artistic projects, this year curated by Artistic Director Girish Shahane, integrated in conjunction with the renowned Speakers’ Forum, bringing a diverse range of high profile industry speakers and thought leaders to the fair. Additionally, the fair plays host to a variety of art book stores, new restaurant spaces, curated walks, performance art, live music and an increasingly prolific series of Collateral Events across New Delhi and across India.
This is our flagship educational outreach programme, open for all to attend free of charge. The Speaker's Forum is an international platform that will feature renowned artists, critics, curators and collectors. It intends to uphold its rationale to be a comprehensive forum for discussion and debate on current trends and approaches, in the Indian and broader global art market.
