Our Journey

gallery pictures  |  walkthrough
Housed in Square One mall in Saket, Gallerie Nvya is one of the most dynamic and unique art galleries in the city. In terms of focus, it has two main thrust areas. The first of these is the gallery's recognition and encouragement of young talent. Our endeavor is to always be associated with the best of skill, vision and imagination and execution. In an attempt to honor this talent the gallery thus provides a platform that aims at empowering young practitioners and experimenters to surge ahead whilst fuelled by the power of their creative impulses.

Another area that we pride ourselves on is our fantastically eclectic collection of art that brings together the modern, the contemporary, the new age and the experimental. Aware of the basic principal that art can be neither confined nor defined, we recognize the validity of different ways and means of creative expressive; we respect the range of styles, vocabularies and techniques that the artist can summon to his service in the creation of his work. As our exhibits and collections indicate, this difference that defies all attempts at homogeneity is the soul of both the artist as well as of the art he/she creates. In providing a space that upholds the dignity and validity of this diversity the gallery, once again, fulfills what it believes to be an integral part of its social and creative responsibility.

A true aesthetic object does must be presented and viewed in a space that respects and enhances its voice. This, essentially, is the kind of space that Gallerie Nvya  prides itself of being. To sharpen focus areas we have also attempted to delineate physical spaces and now have areas dedicated to sculptural, senior masters and current running shows respectively. While all of these can essentially occupy the same space, our recognition of the nuanced differences and the fine-tuned specificities of different kinds of artistic expression inspired us to create actual physical locations that vary in their scope so that the principal of non-homogenized art is never compromised.

The goal of art is to communicate the intangible, that which eludes normal seeing and resists the standardization resulting from perceptions dulled by everyday monotony. Today art has reached a point where it reflects a plethora of realities and interpretations as manifested in a new, contemporary, layered, evocative and challenging language. And at Gallerie Nvya, we have attempted and hopefully succeeded in creating a space in sync with that multivocality.
