India Art Fair is all set to host its sixth edition from 30 January to 2 February 2014 at the NSIC Exhibition Grounds in New Delhi.

Showcasing art projects, art book stores, curated walks, thematic eateries and an extensive collateral events schedule, the fair will be a platform for numerous local and international artists from every field. There will also be a speaker’s forum, where some of the biggest names in visual arts like Chris Dercon (director of the Tate Modern in London), Homi Bhabha (director of the Humanities Centre at Harvard) and Li Bing (owner of Beijing He Jing Yuan Art Museum in China) are scheduled to speak.

Slated to have 91 booths in total, the fair will see participation from 47 Indian galleries like Chemould Prescott Road (Mumbai), Cymroza Art Gallery (Mumbai), Latitude 28 (New Delhi), Experimenter (Kolkata), Shrishti Art Gallery (Hyderabad), to name a few, that will display traditional and modern cultural art practices including painting, sculpture, installation, performance art and new media.

The highlights of the event include a Mughal-inspired jewellery collection by designer Nirav Modi, excerpts from Dayanita Singh’s File Room series, and a video, photography and performance art installation by Portuguese artist Jose Garcia Miguel. Listen Up!, the first public sound art project to be launched in India, will also be part of the programme. Curated by Diana Campbell Betancourt and Tim Goossens and supported by 1after320 art projects, it is a city-wide installation to make sound art publicly accessible through cell phones.
