SCULPTURE PARK AT MADHAVENDRA PALACE IN JAIPUR, INDIA

 

https://www.thesculpturepark.in

The first significant sculpture park for India was recently launched with a collaboration between the Government of Rajasthan and the non-profit organization Saath Sath Arts. The Sculpture Park turned the entire palace into an art gallery with pieces both indoors and outdoors. Artists include Jitish Kallat, Huma Bhaba and Bharti Kher. The Saath Sath Arts was founded by Aparajita Jain, one of a group of private individuals passionate about the arts, trying to fill the arts funding gap (since the Indian government is not very engaged in supporting the arts) and actively promoting international exchange between India and the rest of the world and closely working with international museums, curators and galleries. Women are actively engaged in the arts (and business) in India and six of the eight board members of Saath Sath are women.
