One will also find works from the genres of folk and tribal art, crafts and ritual arts.The United Art Fair had its premiere in September 2012. It radically ventured away from the normal art fair model, choosing instead to showcase works of art which could be sourced from artists directly, without the intermediary of a gallery or a dealer, but could be available for sale to the public visiting the fair.

In fact, this diversity has been our foundation, with the curatorial team and collaborators brought in specifically to gain access to a wider range of materials to be exhibited. The works will all be installed in communication with each other, standing as individual works by individual artists, not sequestered into ghettos defined by neither mediums nor the curators who have chosen them for inclusion.The emphasis of the fair will be on younger, undiscovered talent new to the marketplace and outside of the existing gallery system, overlooked work of a few senior artists will also be exhibited. So, mark your calendars and do pay a visit to have a fresh breath of art!When: 14 to 17 September, 3:30pm onwardsWhere: Pragati Maidanlast_img
