Established in 1989 by Renu Modi, Gallery Espace is among the foremost arts spaces in New Delhi, recognized widely for having nurtured the contemporary moment in Indian art with its ambitious and expansive programming. It has presented large format exhibitions such as ‘Drawing ’94’, ‘Sculpture ’95’, ‘Miniprint’ 96’, ‘Bronze’ (2006), and ‘Video Wednesdays’ (2008-09 & 2011-12) which sparked commercial and critical interest in these hitherto overlooked art categories. Gallery Espace was also a pioneer in introducing cross-disciplinary approaches to exhibitionary practices with exhibitions such as ‘The Self & The World’ (1997), ‘Kitsch Kitsch Hota Hai’ (2001), and ‘Lo Real Maravilloso’ (2009). Gallery Espace has worked with several generations of Indian artists, starting with legendary modernist painter MF Husain, and has also presented fresh talent and supported experimental practices. The gallery’s eclectic and nuanced aesthetics is reflected in its roster of artists which include Zarina, Nilima Sheikh, Manjunath Kamath, GR Iranna, Ravi Agarwal, Manisha Gera Baswani, Chitra Ganesh, Waswo X Waswo, and emerging artists such as Ishita Chakraborty and Purvai Rai, whose works reflect changing concerns and tastes.
