Jhaveri Contemporary was formed in 2010 by sisters Amrita and Priya with an eye towards representing artists, across generations and nationalities, whose work is informed by South Asian connections and traditions. In 2010, Amrita and Priya Jhaveri also produced Sir Anish Kapoor’s first-ever public exhibition in India, a landmark event in the country’s art world. Jhaveri Contemporary’s dedication to the creation of original scholarship, engendered through its carefully crafted shows, is one of the many ways in which the gallery distinguishes itself. Entwined with this philosophy is another guiding principle: showcasing the heterogeneous practices of long-celebrated luminaries as well as emerging talents, often in generously interrogative conversations.
