India Art Fair gets bigger and better

The upcoming edition of India Art Fair, 2016 is poised to be bigger, better and marvelously exciting. It is scheduled to take place at the NSIC Grounds, Okhla, New Delhi from January 28th-31st with a preview by invitation only on January 28th. It is one of the most sought after and much awaited premier event in the capital's art calendar when the who's who of the Delhi society, art connoisseurs, HNIs, art investors and industrialists among others come visiting.  

Since its launch in 2008, India Art Fair has established itself as South Asia's leading platform for modern and contemporary art. Spurring a new wave of engagement with Indian art at every level of the market, the fair has become the bedrock of a now booming cultural community.

Building on these foundations, the fair is revising its mission and refining its programming to reflect the best of South Asia's diversity in the visual arts. It will be a wait with-bated-breath to be able to see the best in art from these countries.

The fair's 2016 edition will mark a new chapter in its evolution. In step with India's increasing cultural influence, India Art Fair is making a number of enhancements to its organisation which includes significant changes to its partnerships, internal team and gallery programming.

The automobile giant BMW, has made significant contribution to culture, initiating over 100 cultural collaborations worldwide. From commissioned works by Gerhard Richter for the BMW Group's Munich headquarters, to projects with artists such as Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Olafur Eliasson and Jeff Koons is the presenting  partner of India Art Fair, 2016.

The fair has appointed Zain Masud as its International Director.  Masud brings her seasoned experience within the art scenes of the Middle East, South Asia, Russia, China and Africa, alongside her extensive networks within the Western art world.

India Art Fair is a trademarked event property owned by Seventh Plane Networks, launched by its Founding Director Neha Kirpal in 2008. She has steered its unprecedented growth and success over the eight years into becoming the premier destination for art in the region. A detailed programme including the gallery list, art projects, speakers list and collateral events will be announced in October 2016.
