Art in India still sorely lacks the awareness, appreciation and support that it receives internationally. We have lack of pro-art public policy, a dearth of quality galleries, museums and public art spaces. We are also far away from meaningfully bringing art to the masses and creating a society that is aware of, and takes pride in, the art and artists of its country. In order to solve these problems and also give platform to artists to get them into the system, we at Artkhoj are coming up with series of Art exhibition starting with Unbound. Unbound, is an art exhibition series where we are trying to bring to you Art and Artists without boundaries.
