The Indian Art Summit has created a second art fair in the country just by moving it’s date:
After two years of being held in August, the organisers of India Art Summit decided to shift the annual event to January leading to a no show in 2010. But the Capital’s art circles will not be deprived of an art extravaganza in this calender year. Another art event, the India International Art Fair, will make its debut in autumn. Interestingly, it was the postponement of the Summit that led to the plans for the art fair.
“The success of the Summit proved that there is a scope for a major art show. Since there was no other art event this year, we felt the gap needed to be filled. With the Summit in January, we decided to schedule our annual fair in September,” says Jaswinder Singh, owner of Delhi-based Mystiq Art Gallery,
