When and where is the next India Art Fair?

The 13th edition of India Art Fair will take place at NSIC Exhibition Grounds, New Delhi, from Thursday, 3 February to Sunday, 6 February 2022

What makes India Art Fair truly unique?

India Art Fair is the leading platform to discover modern and contemporary art in South Asia. Spread across a 12,000 square meter venue, it is the biggest event in India’s cultural calendar with over 60 pioneering exhibitors from across India presenting some of the region’s most iconic artists, alongside select international participants who bring works that have never or rarely been shown in India. 

Some big names participating at the fair?

At India Art Fair, you can expect to see works by some of the biggest names in the art world, from Yayoi Kusama, Amrita Shergil and Anish Kapoor to Olafur Eliasson, Ai Weiwei and Bharti Kher, alongside the freshest, young talent from the region. Keeping art, artists and our audiences at the centre of our programme, we also host talks, performances, workshops, films and projects – at the venue and around the city – making the fair an established destination for creativity. 

Who can visit India Art Fair?

India Art Fair is for absolutely everyone! Our visitors include artists and creatives, gallerists and collectors, celebrities and CEOs, critics and art lovers. Some visit to acquire artworks, while others view the fair more as an exhibition, enjoying the experience as a cultural day out.

How inclusive and accessible is India Art Fair?

India Art Fair is an all-inclusive event with braille guides and tactile representations of important artworks, sign language interpreters, wheelchair services and feeding rooms for new mothers. We invite visitors to experience the richness and diversity of Indian and South Asian art in an accessible, welcoming environment.
