Indian artists discover entry to the world at Dubai Art Fair
Posted on March 29, 2019
Dubai Art Fair has witnessed participation of 42 nations across the world including India. The 6 galleries showcase modernist masters such as Akbar Padamsee and M F Hussain. Breakout stars such as Prabhakar Pachpute also find a place in the gallery. He is from Maharashtra’s Chandrapur and has exhibited charcoal drawings.
Indian artists say that the platform offers them international exposure. They also get an opportunity to network with museum representatives and collectors. This is from Europe and West Asia who do not visit India otherwise, as quoted by the Times of India.
Sanchit Art’s Sanchit Joshan said that there is a very high turnout of global institutions specifically looking at Indian Art at Art Dubai. For example, we have found a promising market in collectors from Hong Kong. This is by exhibiting our art at Dubai Art Fair, he added.
International Director of Art Dubai Pablo Del Val said that the idea right from the beginning has been to collate energies from diverse locations globally. These are usually not visible in North-American and Euro-centric projects and discourses, said Pablo.
Chloe Vaitsou the new Art Director of the Dubai Art Fair said that the numbers of South Asian NRIs in Dubai are growing. It thus makes Dubai a natural destination to exhibit talents from the region, added Vaitsou.
My first trip after joining Art Dubai was to Kochi Muziris Biennale said Vaitsou. This was followed immediately by a visit to the India Art Fair in Delhi, she added. The fair has emerged as a crucial platform for networking and positioning contemporary Indian Art. It was hit badly due to the global financial crisis in 2008, she explained.
