India Art Fair’s Young Collectors Programme, curated by archaeologist and art historian Anica Mann, is a gateway to getting to know contemporary South Asian art. Taking place from 4 to 12 February at the Young Collectors Hub at Bikaner House in New Delhi, the programme is the perfect opportunity to discover new galleries and learn about various forms of art beyond traditional canvas paintings, such as photography, sculpture, video art, books, music and performance art. Specially designed for the culturally curious and new collectors, the Young Collectors Programme will also be great place to network and explore an exciting line-up of parallel events in the city.
