The Indian press is already getting psyched for the second edition of the Indian Art Summit to be held in New Delhi in August:
THE UPCOMING 2nd Art Summit 2009, to be held at New Delhi’s Pragati Maidan between August 19 and August 22, is a really important art event to look forward to. After a successful Art Fair of Indian Contemporary Art in 2008, where 34 galleries from India and abroad took part, the Art Summit’s second edition is being held on a grander scale and promises to be a world-class art event.
At the inaugural summit last year, organisers claimed to have sold 50 per cent of the artworks that were exhibited. This year’s summit has many more participants and promises to be a real treat for art lovers. It will feature many more galleries – 54 at the last count with 17 galleries from abroad, including some of the most prominent international galleries from Europe, Asia and the United States.
