Event Description

Aakriti Art Gallery at India Art Fair, New Delhi

Booth A09

31St January  to 3rd  February, 2019

NSIC Grounds, Okhla Industrial Area, New Delhi



The formidable presence of Aakriti Art Gallery in the 11th edition of Indian Art Fair as it has done in the past editions perpetuates its commitment to serious and meaningful endeavours. The gallery’s booth showcases works done by Masters and contemporary practitioners who have contributed to the making and evolution of Indian art. The works presented here showcase a wonderful process and spirit that provoke a dialogue that will not question our own notion of culture but will also affect us how we imagine ourselves. Considering what Aakriti creates a site with works of artists who have been showcased alongwith Masters to ensure the very best representations of contemporary developments. The list of artists is arranged alphabetically : Aditya Basak, Akbar Padamsee, Akhil Chandra Das, Akhilesh, Amrita Sher-Gil, AsimBasu, Bimal Kundu, Bipin Goswami, Chandra Bhattacharjee, Ganesh Haloi, Ganesh Pyne, Jamini Roy, K.H.Ara, K.LaxmaGoud, KrishenKhanna, Lalu Prasad Shaw, M.F. Husain, Manjit Bawa, Nandalal Bose, PareshMaity,Paritosh Sen, Prabhakar Kolte, Rabin Mondal, Ramkumar, S.H.Raza, Sadanand Bakre, Sakti Burman, Sekhar Roy, Sudip Roy, Suhas Roy, and Tapas Biswas. Thus from a profusion of options the gallery has been able to distill a coherent and positive selection. Considering what the gallery has offered in the past quite elucidates the fact derived from its exhibition histories that the policy has always remained a respect for senior and established talent and discernment of new promise through thoughtfully curated exhibitions.  We already know that it has also taken enormous care through exhibitions like ‘Gen Next’ to put contemporary Indian and International Art before the public in a balanced and coherent manner. Though its emphasis has largely been on Indian art, in particular, it has also showcased meaningful works from abroad at regular intervals.


The present booth at India Art Fair, 2019; in which the works of some of the fresh talents are seen with conjunction with that of established artists and Masters of Indian Art. These works that supposedly represent us, also help us to build our pride as much as our self-hate, our complexes as much as our self esteem.


Contemporary India may be said to be in the throes of a transionality that defines itself in terms of a challenge in political theory and to earlier paradigms of nationhood, govenmentalism and developmentalism. Presently we find ourselves in the moment of transit where space and time cross to produce complex figures of difference and identity, past and present, inside and outside, inclusion and exclusion that centers on the notion of displacement, migration and identityThe artists of the present reason out proposition for locating the subversion of art practice in the interstices of urban spaces and beyond.
