India Art Fair 2014

The Man by Jagdish Chinthala

India Art Fair (IAF) is the premier destination in India for modern and contemporary art. Launched in 2008 by Neha Kirpal, it is already one of South Asia’s leading art fairs, exhibiting and selling works of both local and international artists. The 6th edition will take place, as always, in Delhi from 30 January to 2 February 2014.

IAF may be fun and fashionable, but it is unquestionably a serious affair of exhibiting and marketing art, about people collecting work they admire. At this year's fair, 91 booths, brimming with accessible and non-accessible art from India and across the world will reveal the local and international artists to a large and diverse audience. It is indeed the highlight of India’s hectic and eclectic cultural season.

The 47 Indian galleries will be showcasing a range of modern and contemporary art practices including painting, sculpture, new media, installation, and performance art. The international galleries will be bringing in a vibrant mix – from returning European galleries to cutting edge newcomers – all here to explore the Indian art market.

Apart from the galleries, the focus of the fair this year will be an extensive Art Projects programme, presenting work from well-known Indian and international artists, among them Tim Goossens, Diana Campbell, and artist Dayanita Singh.

World renowned jeweller Nirav Modi will also be presenting a collection inspired by Mughal motifs.

The SALT feature on IAF focuses on five South Asian artists whose work will be exhibited for the first time at IAF. The five are: Simeen Farhat from Pakistan/US; Yamini Nayar from the US; Yusuf Arrakal of Kerala; Jagdish Chintala of Hyderabad; and J Swaminathan who lived and worked in Delhi until his death in 1994.
