Asia is a gigantic continent with a diverse collection of cultures. Nestled in South Asia is the India Art Fair in New Delhi. Representing the continent’s vast diversity, the Art Fair features exquisite work in photography, paintings, music, sculptures and many other forms of visual art. The region’s finest work is scattered throughout dozens of galleries waiting to be discovered.
With a shared ambition to promote cultural discourse in South Asia, and provide a platform for these discussions, India Art Fair has developed platforms such as the Speakers’ Forum and Film Programme. This broad and exciting programme of lectures, screenings and conversations will engage a diverse range of stakeholders in the visual arts as well as cover a wide spectrum of artistic practices.
India Art Fair’s acclaimed Speakers’ Forum brings together artists, curators, patrons, and professionals engaged within the visual arts, to explore themes of access, integration and cultural discourse across South Asia.

‘Art on Film’ is an exploration of the intersection between film-making and the visual arts in India from the 1960s to the present day. The programme consists of films about artists and those made by artists, and sees filmmakers and artists work across genres to push the boundaries of their respective mediums. The films span several decades of image-making and follow the narrative of Indian art from Modernist abstraction to the Narrative Figuration. The programme has been co-curated by filmmaker Avijit Mukul Kishore and architect and academic Rohan Shivkumar, with the Godrej India Culture Lab.
