Devi Art Foundation

The Devi Art Foundation has been established to facilitate the viewership of creative expression and artistic practice that exist in India. This not-for-profit space provides for innovation unconstrained by commercial limitations; to afford artists from the region engaged in cutting edge, experimental work, an art centre. Along with providing a platform for contemporary artists, we hope to interact closely with, and encourage young curators and critics, helping to give voice to their concerns.

By undermining geo-political divides, the objective of the Foundation is to foster a dialogue from within the Indian Sub-continent amongst various art practitioners, enhancing the understanding of our shared history. A series of talks and lectures are designed to accompany the exhibitions in an attempt to bridge the gap between art production and a wider audience. Supplementing this is an education and outreach programme aimed at encouraging a culture where art becomes a matter of active discussion and debate.

Located on the premises of a corporate office, the Foundation is spread over two floors with an area of 7500 square feet. The programme focuses on two exhibitions each year, curated out of the Lekha and Anupam Poddar Collection. These will be on view for a substantial period to allow engagement with the exhibits.
