Event :After the successful launch of its unique initiative of supporting emerging contemporary
artists last month, Gallery Ragini now presents the second edition of Platform, that consists
paintings by R S Pandey.  The artworks would be showcased at Choko La, Khan Market, New Delhi from
October 9, 2009 to November 5, 2009.


Says Nidhi Jain, Director, Gallery Ragini: “We will organize a year-long series of monthly shows by
different artists. The entire programme has been conceptualized to provide a platform to those
artists who are going to shape our future art market. As a gallerist, it is important to recognize
these hidden gems who are our future as a little nurturing can help them blossom. It is like
bringing these artists into limelight by providing an initial space for display to those who can’t
afford solo shows.”


Adds Nidhi Jain: “We would be displaying about 6-8 works of the chosen artist in Choko La, where the
sunlit room provides an apt environment for art accompanied by a relaxed cup of coffee. This concept
of combining cafés with art is popular world over and with Platform we attempt to recreate the same
combination in Delhi. However, this platform is not only limited to young emerging artists alone,
instead works by those who started their career mid-life will also get a chance.”


Venue: Choko La, Khan Market, New Delhi


Date: October 9, 2009 to November 5, 2009.
