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.
