The 15th edition of the India Art Fair 2024, presented in collaboration with BMW India, is set to take place from February 1 to 4 at the NSIC Exhibition Grounds. Boasting participation from over 100 exhibitors worldwide, including 71 galleries, seven design studios, and prominent regional art institutions, this edition is poised to be the largest yet.
Recognized as a premier platform for presenting modern and contemporary art from India and South Asia, the upcoming fair introduces a Design section for the first time. This section will spotlight the burgeoning contemporary design landscape in South Asia, featuring limited edition and handcrafted collectibles such as furniture, jewelry, and fabrics from various studios.
The 2024 edition will also present exhibitions by 18 international galleries and institutions, along with the involvement of leaders from global arts organizations in its Talks Program.

Leading contemporary galleries from India, including Vadehra Art Gallery, GALLERYSKE, Nature Morte, and others, will showcase rare masterpieces and contemporary works, drawing from South Asia’s rich traditional arts heritage.
Among the participating international galleries are Galleria Continua, Marc Straus, Aicon Contemporary, and more. The fair will introduce three new international galleries: Carpenters Workshop Gallery, Galerie Geek Art, and Indigo Madder.
The Focus section will highlight mixed media works by veteran artists, including Probir Gupta, Paresh Maity, V Ramesh, and emerging talents like Dibin Thilakan. The Institution section will feature booths and projects by 22 leading cultural foundations, collectives, and organizations.
