Indian Contemporary Art - The Road Ahead and being on The Wall !


Dear Friends,

My apologies for not being regular in updating this blog.

I guess with the downturn in the Indian art scene,  you may think that even keen collectors like me had also lost all hope for any recovery. Contrary to that, I continue to believe in the Indian art scene.

The reason for not updating this blog was two fold, the key being more professional responsibilities in  my job as a hotelier and the second being, that every month, we were bring art news to your computers and iPad's with The Wall.

The Wall, is today, India's most well read art magazine which I guess is an easy achievement, there are no monthly art magazines in India, so in most of the magazines, you read the summer show review, 6 months later in the winter.They do not come out more than 3-4 times a year, while The Wall comes out on the 1st of every month at www.thewallartmag.com.

The achievement though was that it was an official media partner to Art Basel, Hong Kong this year and also, withe very passing, the number of subscribers keep on going up.

So, I was being true to my mission of increasing the coverage of arts in the country with complete transparency as you all had witnessed in this blog.

I will definitely try and keep this more active and share much more with you as we go through this journey in the world of Indian Contemporary art.

Warm wishes

Kapil

Contemporary art is art produced at the present period in time. Contemporary art includes, and develops from, Postmodern art, which is itself a successor to Modern art. To know more about Contemporary art visit Indian Art Ideas ( http://www.indianartideas.in/ ), an online art gallery.
