International Participation Doubles at the 3rd Edition of India Art Summit.
NEW DELHI.- The 3rd Edition of India Art Summit™ –India’s Modern and Contemporary Art Fair– is set to take place from 21-23 January 2011 in Pragati Maidan (ITPO), New Delhi. With 84 exhibiting galleries at this edition, and the inclusion of 34 leading international galleries (double the number that participated in 2009), India’s importance as an emerging global centre for art is further confirmed.

The 3rd Edition of India Art Summit will present galleries from 20 countries including Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Korea, Singapore, Spain, Switzerland, UAE, the UK and the USA, among others.

Top galleries from around the world will include Lisson Gallery (London, UK), Sundaram Tagore Gallery (Hong Kong, China), Galerie Kashya Hildebrand (Zurich, Switzerland), Aicon Gallery (New York, USA), Grosvenor Gallery (London, UK), Thomas Erben Gallery (New York, USA), Galerie Frank Elbaz (Paris, France), Die Galerie (Frankfurt, Germany), The Drawing Room (Makati City, The Philippines), Greenaway Gallery (Adelaide, Australia), and more. Returning for the 3rd Edition, Michelle D’Souza, Director, Lisson Gallery said “we are thrilled to be back at this exciting event and privileged to play a role in the internationalisation of the Indian art world."

With the leading Indian galleries coming together again for the third year, this edition continues to build on its position as the country’s premier art fair platform for Modern and Contemporary Art. “India has never seen this selection of art and galleries come together from around the world, I’m very excited to see that our country’s art fair is shaping up to be of a truly international standard”, said Shireen Gandhy, Director, Chemould Prescott Road (Mumbai, India).

The final shortlist of 84 galleries has been carefully chosen by the selection committee of the art fair, from a pool of over 150 applicants from India and around the world. The total area of the art fair has increased almost two-fold to approximately 8000 sq mtr of exhibition space, and the total number of galleries has increased by 55% from the previous edition. “We’re very pleased with the quality of galleries that have been selected and the breadth of Modern and Contemporary Art that will be presented at the upcoming fair” said Neha Kirpal, Director, India Art Summit.

This edition will see a greater curatorial focus in the gallery booth plans with strong group shows in the General Exhibition Section, and individual artist displays in the new Solo Projects Section of the art fair. Further, a vastly extended Sculpture Park surrounding the entire art fair venue and the dedicated spaces for video and performance art will give galleries a much wider stage on which to present an array of art practices and mediums.
