Galerie Isa was founded by Ashwin Thadani in 2011, and has since established itself as a leading proponent of international contemporary art on the Indian subcontinent. Located within a 300 year-old colonial building in Mumbai’s Fort district, the gallery carefully develops each exhibition as part of a cumulative curatorial endevour, introducing its audience to the kaleidoscopic practices of today’s most dynamic artists, from emerging and mid-career, to the world-renown.
Galerie Isa’s programing is distinguished by a long-standing dialog with artists such as Michael Kunze, Gregor Hildebrandt, Matthias Bitzer, Robert Elfgen, Idris Khan and Edouard Baribeaud, enriched further by the presentations of artists such as Jonas Burgert, Louise Despont, Annie Morris, Angel Otero and Antonio Santin, among others. The gallery regularly produces scholarly catalogues and collaborates with external curators to create thematic exhibitions, bringing works by such critically acclaimed artists as Diana Al-Hadid, Ali Banisadr, Olafur Eliasson, and Adrian Ghenie.
Now in its seventh year, Galerie Isa continues to offer a unique platform to a compelling range of international artists, whereby their reception in India and its region will further their contribution on the art history of the 21st century and thereon.
