Platform at India Art Fair

Platform is a springboard for emerging art practices and art collectives from South Asia. At this year’s India Art Fair, Platform will have a particular focus on vernacular arts with the aim to explore the cultural history of the region through previously under-represented art forms and aesthetic traditions. This walk aims to illuminate this special section at India Art Fair and the fair's renewed commitment to showcasing the subcontinent's rich diversity of cultural practices.

 

This guided tour is free.
