India Art Fair
India Art Fair is the leading platform to discover modern and contemporary art from South Asia, offering a unique access point to the region’s thriving cultural scene.
Taking place annually in India’s capital, New Delhi, the fair reflects the city’s fast-developing local arts scene, while offering curated insights into the cultural landscapes of neighbouring countries. The fair’s programme - which draws together galleries and artists, private foundations and arts charities, artists’ collectives, national institutions, cultural events and festivals - enables international audiences to engage in innovative ways with the cultural history and development of the region.
Packed with exciting initiatives for its tenth edition, India Art Fair 2018 will present the best of the local and regional art scene, from its fascinating history through to its modern-day icons and emerging talent.

What makes India Art Fair different?
India Art Fair attracts visitors with an interest in the art world, such as curators, artists, collectors, journalists, gallerists and critics, and art lovers. Some visit to acquire art, while others view the fair more as an exhibition, enjoying the experience as a cultural day out.

The fair is made up of five sections: the Galleries consist of Indian and international exhibitors presenting works by a range of artists; Focus features solo artist presentations; Institutional showcases leading Indian and international museums and art foundations presenting elements of their programmes or collaborations commissioned specially for the fair; Platform represents young emerging artists or art practices from throughout South Asia; and Art Projects is a non-commercial space to discover large-scale, site-specific installations.
