Delhi apart from being the capital of the country is also the treasure trove that carries the rich heritage of India be it in art, history, architecture, technology, culture, or politics. One such great festival from this treasure trove that celebrates Indian art and brings together the artists and their admirers to a single platform is the India Art Festival. Every year 3 editions of this art fair are organized, which are attended by thousands of people related to art in any way.
The India Art Festival was founded in 2011 as a dialogue cum collaboration platform where artists, art buyers, art admirers, art dealers, art galleries, architects, and interior designers can come together and interact better. The platform is a great opportunity for budding/independent artists to showcase their art pieces and engage with art dealers and prominent artists.
The art festival is organized thrice annually in Delhi, Mumbai, and Bengaluru. Through this contemporary art fair, the festival hosts artists from across the country and strengthens the association among art galleries and artists. Panel discussions and seminars are also organized at the fair wherein expert speakers put forth their perspective on topics that are influenced by art and topics that have an impact on art.
Art galleries and artists from India and Asian Subcontinent take part in this festival. The festival is an opportunity to explore and witness original artworks by these artists, which include drawings, sculptures, prints, photography, lithographs, prints, and a lot more. The primary motive behind this art fair is to bridge the gap between rural artists and metro cities/urban artists. Besides empowering the rural artists, the art festival also attempts to streamline the art viewing, selling, and buying process.
The India Art Festival has been scheduled to commence from 15th April to 18th April in 2021. People can participate in the festival through online links for which they have to subscribe to the official website of the India Art Festival.
