AK: The interest in contemporary art in China is booming. Do you foresee the same future for Indian contemporary art?
GK: Absolutely. The great difference is that China decided some few years ago that advancing its contemporary artists was an important initiative if China was to become an even more potent global player in the world economy. The Indian government has not yet determined that developing this line of dialogue is useful. We believe this is a profound error and our work with the iCon exhibition in Venice is an effort to jump-start a change of heart both within India and with the expatriate Indian community."
