Galerie Krinzinger is delighted to announce the gallery’s first participation at the Indian Art Summit this year. As a special project for this fair Galerie Krinzinger will be presenting an Artist’s Choice show. In recent years Galerie Krinzinger has been working continually with Indian artists and has invited them to Austria as often as possible. Some of them have even been artists in residence in Vienna like Sakshi Gupta or Mithu Sen. During their sojourn they had been able to get familiar with Galerie Krinzingers programme. The Indian artists had the opportunity to meet artists of Galerie Krinzinger at their studios and had in-depth discussions with them about their work.
8 Indian artist were asked by Galerie Krinzinger to choose one artist from Galerie Krinzingers national and international roster of artists whose work they hold In high esteem and where they can find connections and correspondences to their own work. Sometimes they are able to find inspiration, identification or friction in the media and subject matter for their own artistic production. The dialogue between the artists forces the spectator to think about relations and similarities even across continents. With this creative input the exhibition project will grow into a network with global perspectives.
