“Forum strives to go beyond the commercial, to be of value to society, to have a wider reach implementing
its philosophy of art education, service and awareness.”
Since its inception in 1997 by artist Shalini Biswajit, Forum Art Gallery stands today as one of the
country’s most distinguished and well-defined centers of contemporary art. Spread over 3 levels covering
almost 4,000 sq.ft, the gallery delivers a holistic art experience – art exhibitions, art consultation, art
education and art therapy.
Forum stocks a comprehensive genre of paintings, sculpture, photography, cartoon art and installation
art. With more than 70 well-documented and curated shows to its credit, the gallery pledges to promote
young exciting talents and established ones to create a greater drive towards the popularization of the
arts.
Forum endeavors to bring art into the every day lives of people. Be it in the form of ArtInk, the
gallery’s unique art and craft education program for children and adults, or the exhibitions, seminars
and symposia on art that the gallery conducts, its commitment to excellence is foremost.
Partnering with international organizations like The British Council and The Indo Korean Cultural
Centre, Forum has co-hosted innovative and prestigious exhibitions that bridge cross cultural borders
and bring the art of other nations to India.
Forum is also associated with charitable organizations and hospitals and offers art education
to the underprivileged and the mentally challenged. It also reaches out to physically challenged and
terminally ill children and imparts art therapy to facilitate healing and experience joy, making it a unique
gallery in the Indian visual artscape. In 2011, Forum Art Gallery looks forward to ICE – Innovation,
collaboration and exposure in the national and international art market.
