Aicon Gallery’s vision begins in the Indian Sub-continent but reaches outwards internationally. The gallery space in New York provides a unique platform for South Asian artists to exhibit in the United States. Along with in-depth, focused solo shows, the galleries present a programme of curated group exhibitions that are international in their scope and ambition. With critical exhibitions of work by emerging and contemporary South Asian artists, one of Aicon’s primary goals is to create a space for dialogue and cross-collaboration between the arts of India, Pakistan, and the West.
