ArtBuzz Studios is pleased to announce Surface: 01, an exhibition of emerging artists which will take place at ArtBuzz Studios in Okhla, New Delhi on 13 and 14 October 2018, with a preview on 12 October.
ArtBuzz Studios, founded by Anubha Gupta and Amisha Chowbey, is an open, artist-friendly venue for creative individuals and a place where artists can create in a community, meet fellow artists as they progress in their artistic journeys. It leaves room for exploration and experimentation, opening up a dialogue and extending the exhibition space to artists outside the gallery.
The exhibition will showcase 31 emerging artists from across the country, including Abhinav Chowbey, Ankit Khurana, Arjun Sara, Devki Modi, Kritika Anand, Waleed Zafar, Samriddhi Kukrja, Shivangi Ladha, Siddharth Sarohi, Smriti Sangal, Vernika Prakash and Yashika Sugandh, amongst many others.
Anubha Gupta, co-founder at ArtBuzz Studios says “We wanted to support the phenomenal amount of young talented artists in Delhi, who lack a space and platform. What started as an idea to promote artists who co-create at ArtBuzz Studios, evolved into an open platform encouraging creative exchange, and dialogue whilst also assisting young artists in developing their careers. Surface: 01 has been our most ambitious project to date.”
Amisha Chowbey, co-founder, says “We’re enjoying every bit of the madness, shortlisting and curating, meeting talented artists along the way and sharing our passion for the growth of art. The first of many more to come, we’ve always looked forward to a project that explores the potential of ArtBuzz Studios in the way it was intended to be. We really hope the young creative community in Delhi will support our exhibition and come to the preview on 12 Oct.”
Highlights of the interdisciplinary exhibition include Arjun Sara’s work with the geometric form of circles in the series titled : ‘Sara Substance’; Prasoon Poddar’s artwork titled ‘Hey…Rama’ which weaves in the concept of soiled currency notes that were collected over a period of 2 years, and Devki Modi Jain’s video art ‘somewhere. everywhere. nowhere’ that explores the idea of a pichvai (screen).
This is a unique opportunity for young artists to showcase their work to the Delhi art world, grow and develop their careers. ArtBuzz Studios will offer advice and guidance to short-listed applicants on how they can promote their work, introducing them to collectors and covering exhibition installation costs. ArtBuzz Studios will not take commissions from art sales – the full proceeds from artworks sold will be given to the artist.
