At Aicon we specialize in modern and contemporary non-Western art with a special focus on South Asia, Africa and the Middle East. The New York gallery provides a vital platform for Modern and Contemporary artists from these regions to realize their vision in a global and ever-shifting world. Alongside in-depth, focused solo shows, the gallery presents a program of curated group exhibitions that are international in their scope and ambition.
In solo shows, Aicon Art has shown the work of established 20th-century artists such as M. F. Husain, F. N. Souza and S. H. Raza. The gallery has also presented solo shows of senior living artists Victor Ekpuk, Nataraj Sharma, Natvar Bhavsar, Rina Banerjee, Anjolie Ela Menon and Surendran Nair. From the younger generation, we have exhibited solo shows of Salman Toor, Mequitta Ahuja, Khadim Ali and Youdhisthir Maharjan. Group shows have included Readymade: Contemporary Art from Bangladesh as well as Between Line and Matter: Impulse of Minimalism in South Asia and the Middle East. The gallery has collaborated with museums such as The Art Institute, Chicago; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; Kiran Nadar Museum of Art, New Delhi; Asian Art Museum, San Francisco; The Jewish Museum, New York; and Louvre Abu Dhabi. Exhibitions have been reviewed and the gallery has been profiled by The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Times of London, Art Asia Pacific, ArtForum and the Financial Times.
