Art is hot and getting hotter. Proof? Last year, the India Art Summit sprawled over 4,500 sq.ft., 380 artists and 54 galleries from 11 countries were represented, and art worth Rs. 26 crore changed hands. This in a year that saw one of the worst global economic slowdowns ever.
This year, the summit will spread over 8,000 sq.ft., with 570 artists, and 84 galleries from 20 countries. Ashish Anand, director, Delhi Art Gallery, says, “Everyone will come: Collectors, artists, critics. Attendance is huge, with 20,000 people a day. It’s a fantastic platform for participants. And collectors.”
If you’re looking for an investment that will at least look good, no matter what happens, you know where to go.
January 20-23, Pragati Maidan, New Delhi.
