Art Alive Gallery, Delhi, India
Artist Unknown is a tribute to all the artists who remain unknown from the margins of intellectuals, market and ownership networks reclaiming the ‘space’ for them in a gallery site.
Many artists are unable to thrive under the demanding pressures of the Contemporary Art world. Forever struggling to create an identity, in the process, they remain caught in complicated web of the urban lifestyle countering the forces in power.
Artist Unknown is a tribute to all the artists who remain unknown.
This show can be seen as an extension of these artists’ struggle to counter the well-established urban institutional etiquette that leads to a main-stream setting overlooking many aspects of an individual’s identity.
