  • ‘Trying to make art fair more rounded, lifestyle affair’ | The Financial Express
    There is also a whole range of collateral events about 20 of them happening around the fair that are adding to the buzz Have you seen any trends among visitors this year We are seeing a lot of interest coming in from newer sections of people such as young individual collectors from around the country who have never come to the art fair before A lot of these are from mainstream corporate worlds who have never engaged with art Maybe this had had to do with the outreach programmes roadshows and dinners that we conducted and which are leading to a broader interest among visitors We ve also never had such a huge audience coming in from places such as the Middle East and within the south Asian region That has happened now maybe because their countries are being represented in such a substantial way What has been the profile of a typical buyer at IAF over the years The objective of the fair has always been to look at the next set of audiences to cultivate further interest among them Of course we bring in top collectors from across the country and other parts of the world who are already on everybody s checklist and are engaged with the art world But the idea is also to reach out to newer people This year you got a lot of corporate support in terms of sponsors and partners Tell us more about it There are a whole lot of corporate houses who have come forward this year These sponsors and partners have expanded the reach of the 2016 edition BMW for instance is not just our presenting partner it is also showcasing the Cesar Manrique BMW 730i Art Car a commissioned piece of art reflecting the cultural and historical development of art design and technology To further its engagement at the fair BMW is also hosting IAF s first ever collectors lounge an exclusive space for collectors to connect share highlights and continue discussions Our associate partner JSW has brought its steel and cement to create the fair s seating and outdoor areas So there is this whole influx of luxury brands and Indian industrial houses who are getting behind to support an Indian venture that is truly international You also got Zain Masud formerly of Art Dubai as the new international director What was the idea behind it While we were looking at creating a certain positioning for the art fair and this year particularly when we are trying to establish ourselves as a leading art fair within the south Asian region we felt it was important to share that vision with the world at large So it was very important for us to get Zain Masud as the international director Zain has added a lot of value in terms of international outreach with galleries collectors and museums and helped us create and reposition in that measure First Published on January 31 2016 12 09 am Please Wait while

  • ‘India is vast but it’s impossible to know it from a distance’ | The Financial Express
    Also international museums collectors and visitors want to come and understand in one event during four days what s happening in different parts of the world and we are going to provide them that Do you think the time has come for the region to shine in the global art market The region has been shining for quite some time now I think the moment has come to really hone our content The fair is a perfect representative of what south Asia is and I really want to position it that way now There are so many art disciplines in the subcontinent and so integral to the artistic culture of the region It s just about taking it to the next level What makes an event like the India Art Fair so successful over the years I think it s been about bringing together the region s cultural strengths to help create and take the market forward and showcasing the best works from the region The fair is a perfect representative of south Asia and I really want to position it that way now There was a time when the global financial crisis took down assets ranging from stocks to paintings but then again we have also seen moments in the recent past when top end Indian offerings saw some record breaking sales Does this signal that the Indian art market has returned to its heydays Also is it the right time to invest in Indian art Absolutely After a boom there s always a good time to buy wealth Booms inflate everything and crashes help to whittle out the real from the less relevant What you are then left with in the market has more substance and less hot air It s absolutely a great time to buy art Art from this region has great intelligence and is extremely affordable and accessible in comparison to others I think the Indian collector scene is very well positioned to buy some important works that will continue to value There are many international collectors who invest heavily in Indian art I just think Indians should make the most of the fact that they have it on their doorstep Any personal favourites when it comes to Indian art There are lots but I don t want to influence the public laughs What are your expectations from the ongoing art fair in terms of sales business footfall etc The footfall is going to be astronomical as ever which is amazing for me as I come from a city Dubai where I was working before that has a tiny population We have a lot of new and young collectors coming in from across the country and we re focusing a lot on them We expect healthy sales especially from new clients which is exciting First Published on January 31 2016 12 08 am Please Wait while comments are loading Calculators Tax Calculator House Loan Calculator Financial Planner Inflation Planner Pension Calculator Employee PF Calculator Equity

  • Ladies first | The Financial Express
    this lady knew nothing about being a woman By this time I was halfway through my G T which had taken no time to be served But I was having a tougher time swallowing what had just been served up right in front of our eyes That said I shouldn t have been so stunned for it isn t infrequent nor uncommon to be a spectator to such exchanges In fact every time we are seated at a restaurant the drinks menu is only presented to the male s of the group while women are handed the food menu Or when I order an iced tea and she orders a beer inadvertently and unfailingly the beer is placed in front of me The bill is also always presented to me I wouldn t mind were this to change even if it was she who had taken charge of all proceedings for the evening from making reservations to placing the order for both food and drinks And yet it never really gets mentioned much this attitude of preferential treatment meted out to the boys Or rather the stereotypical treatment that women are subjected to We protest against it in every other industry with marches rallies etc and yet it so subtly slides by unsuspected in this industry No surprise then that it took us the better part of a century to allow women to serve alcohol in our country The only place where a strict differentiation between men and women is required is when it comes to the issue of washrooms as women can t be expected to use men s restrooms Barring that one area women are as vociferous and voracious as men if not better So F B stalwarts take note pass the ladies the menu and spare them the sweet fruity concoction treatment next time you find one seated across the bar from you The writer is a sommelier First Published on January 31 2016 12 02 am Please Wait while comments are loading Calculators Tax Calculator House Loan Calculator Financial Planner Inflation Planner Pension Calculator Employee PF Calculator Equity Screener Auto Loan Retirement Plan Savings Investment Guidance Videos BMW 7 series Merc S600 showcased at Auto Expo 2016 Auto Expo 2016 Maruti Suzuki Ignis Baleno RS unveiled Auto Expo 2016 Toyota Innova Crysta MPV makes its India debut Auto Expo 2016 New Hyundai Tucson SUV revealed Galleries IPL 9 auction Market Capitalisation Employment index Vegetable oil import BSE Sensex more PM Narendra Modi inaugurates Paradeep oil refinery Top 10 takeaways Sunny Deol starrer Ghayal Once Again box office collections soar to Rs 14 85 cr by day 2 New Mahindra cars at the Delhi Auto Expo 2016 In the news PM Narendra Modi inaugurates Paradeep oil refinery Top 10 takeaways Sunny Deol starrer Ghayal Once Again box office collections soar to Rs 14 85 cr by day 2 India s biotech moment A made in India Zika virus vaccine Sanam Teri Kasam collections at Rs 1 25
