Talwar Gallery is a contemporary art gallery focusing on artists from the Indian Subcontinent and its diaspora. Underlying the gallery vision is the belief that the artist is geographically located not the art. Their desires to exceed expectations of locality, of self; to extract purpose and significance from their familiar environs, to create, these artists have renegotiated the borders and refuse to singularly site themselves or their work. Their search and their work traverse any simplified categorization based on geography, religion, culture or race.
Representing some of the most exciting young artists working today to the Estates of essential 20th century artists from India like Nasreen Mohamedi and Rummana Hussain, the ideological and visual spectra expressed through the gallery’s exhibitions have been well-received by the International media and major museums worldwide.
Talwar New York was launched in September 2001 and Talwar New Delhi opened in 2007. Deepak Talwar, founder of Talwar Gallery, has been working with contemporary artists from India since 1996. Prior to starting Talwar Gallery, he was Partner and Director of Bose Pacia Gallery, New York.
