Anish Kapoor exhibition heads to New Delhi

Award-winning artist Anish Kapoor is set to open his first ever exhibition in New Delhi, India from 28 November – 27 February 2011.

The major exhibition will be shown across two sites – at the National Gallery of Modern Art, New Delhi and the legendary Mehboob Film Studios in Mumbai.

Organised by the British Council, the Lisson Gallery in London and the Indian Ministry of Culture, both locations will showcase different strands of the artist’s practice and will be the largest exhibition of Kapoor’s work ever to be shown. Kapoor was born in Mumbai, but has lived and worked in London since the 1970s, when he moved to the UK to study at the Chelsea School of Art and Design.

Visitors to the exhibition can expect to see a selection of sculptures and installations from his career, including the early pigment-based works of the 1980s up to his most recent wax installations.

It will also feature works that were showcased in his recent exhibition at the Royal Academy in London, which attracted over 275,000 visitors in less than three months and became the most successful exhibition of a living artist ever held in London.

Kapoor, who won the Turner Prize in 1991, received the prestigious Unilever Commission for the Turbine Hall at Tate Modern in 2002. Among his major permanent commissions is ‘Cloud Gate’ (2004) for the Millennium Park in Chicago, which is considered to be one of the most popular public artworks in the world.
