Alt Text artC India


ArtC is a non-profit initiative that endeavors to promote Contemporary Art in India by supporting the development of artistic practices and expanding the audiences that engage with art. ArtC hope to contribute to the development of infrastructure for art in the country.

At Phoenix Market City Velachery, ArtC provides an alternative space that presents Contemporary Art to new audiences, exhibiting works from a wide variety of media that push the definition of what art can be. In the mall, ArtC organizes rotating exhibitions of international standards with art from India and around the world. In order to enable greater understanding, ArtC offers the information about the works in both English and Tamil next to the works. This program has been curated by Diana Campbell Betancourt and produced by Eve Lemesle.
