This is India sponsored by Indelust at the London Design Fair 2016 

22-25 September 2016

Curated by Spandana Gopal

As the curator for This is India my premise for ‘This is India’ is create a renewed and more intimate perspective of design from India today, as well its context. Historically, India never highlighted formal separations between the arts – and craft, architecture and design have always existed within a more holistic system of creation. Design exists as an open ended and evolving- where experimentation and fabrication happen simultaneously.

In the exhibition, we will play with notions of scale, material and process – to show the possibilities and the potential of being able to create bespoke pieces, where the combination of handmade and industrial processes provide a perspective of the possibilities of designing and making in India today.
