About the Curator

Curator Speaks: "Within a short span, we have not only consolidated ourselves as an institution but also have empowered hundreds of artists from the hinterlands to find their voice."

Curator Note

To be privy to the process of artistic creation is a matter of great privilege and it is with utmost gratitude that I look back at the year that has been. We are one! Within this short span, we have not only consolidated ourselves as an institution but also have empowered hundreds of artists from the hinterlands to find their voice. Each piece of art displayed at Abir Space is validated by reputed art curators. In our repertoire of artists, we have creators from as far as North east in Sikkim or Chhindwara in Madhya Pradesh or remote villages in West Bengal. 

Abir Space was always meant to be a digital initiative to expedite the process of giving a suitable platform to deserving artists and of bringing curated artworks to connoisseurs and collectors alike. I am thrilled to note that we have ticked every box we had targeted and are looking ahead with more enthusiasm, more plans, and more energy. Importantly, such has been the support of the artistic community as well that one cannot thank them enough for boosting our morale along the way when times got tough owing to the pandemic. We went against the tide and held on to our own to actualize our vision of hand holding young artists. Today, our website has more than 1200 works and we are continuously engaged in revamping and curating new pieces to keep Abir Space fresh, vibrant, and relevant.
