India Art Fair has appointed Artsome to conduct its Curated Walks Program. Artsome is a first of its kind endeavour to attempt to fill the lack of education and exposure to art in the Indian Subcontinent. It is a one-stop resource for information on Modern and Contemporary Art in the region. Based on the ideals of being democratic and inclusive, Artsome is dedicated to taking art beyond a niche audience. The aim of creating a space for dialogue between artists, art collectors, buyers and enthusiasts ties up with Artsome’s goal of inclusive dissemination of knowledge and information about Art and promoting Arts amongst an intersection of audience. Artsome has taken several initiatives towards this end since its inception. The curated walks conducted by Atsome for India Art Fair 2015 is a step towards taking art to the public as part of its Educate Artsome initiative. Walks curated by Artsome will help facilitate interaction and dialogue about the arts and will be a unique platform for us to interact with art enthusiasts and artists alike. The prime purpose of these curated walks will be to further knowledge and generate interest in the Arts along with providing a comprehensive guide to the fair.
These are the Curated Walks available to visitors free of charges. So Walk with Artsome at India Art Fair 2015!
