Delhi Art Week
Delhi Art Week is an independent and inclusive non-profit initiative launched in 2021. It aims to bring together private and public art institutions to raise awareness, educate and focus attention on modern and contemporary art in the capital. The key goal of this collaborative effort is to strengthen ties between art organisations and art lovers, and encourage patronage.
Over 30 galleries and institutions participated in the inaugural instalment, which was held from 03 April to 10 April 2021. The second edition, from 24 August to 31 August 2022, will be a hybrid event. It will feature over 40 exhibitions at four clusters or zones of venues across the city. The shows will be available to view for a global audience on the online platform Artsy until 14 September 2022.
