Contemporary Art in South Asia is more exciting than it has ever been. There is a fresh bunch of artists who are creating compelling work that engage with the rapidly fluctuating infrastructure, economy, ecology, landscape and identity politics of our times, and are pushing the limits of aesthetics in ways that would have been unprecedented even a decade ago. Delhi Contemporary Art Week (DCAW) was initiated as an attempt to generate discourse that befits the shifting lens of the contemporary.The upcoming third edition of Delhi Contemporary Art Week 2019 will showcase Capital's best contemporary art under one roof.The third edition is scheduled to be held from 1st -7th September with 31st August as the opening Preview at Visual Arts Gallery, India Habitat Centre.
