“The Curatorial Research Grant was born from hours of conversation with leading art authorities all over the world, trying to find a solution to increase global understanding and informed exhibitions including Indian Contemporary Art. I believe that Indian art is not a bubble that has burst but rather a treasure waiting to be nurtured and discovered. Given the lack of governmental support, it is the acquired responsibility of private patrons to make a difference. Im really happy that through Saat Saath, I can help build bridges between the West and the East. Our first set of grants was extremely insightful for the curators and for us and the curators interactions with the artists reinstates our belief in the dynamism of some of India’s artists’ practices,”
