Aicon Contemporary is an offshoot of Aicon Gallery, which for 20 years has shown non-western modern and contemporary art in New York. Aicon Contemporary was founded to focus on cutting-edge art. We represent artists like G. R. Iranna, currently showing in the 58thVenice Biennale, Adeela Suleman, Abdullah Syed, Abir Karmakar, S. N. Sujith, Debanjan Roy, P.D. Pulak, and others. We have placed works in the British Museum, the Louvre Abu Dhabi, the Art Institute of Chicago, Peabody Essex, Cincinnati Museum of Art, Kiran Nadar Museum of Art, among others. We participate in fairs like the Armory Show, Frieze, Art Basel HK, Abu Dhabi Art, Art Dubai, and the India Art Fair. Aicon forms a critical bridge between the east and west, in the landscape of contemporary art.
In solo shows, Aicon has shown the work of established artists such as M. F. Husain, F. N. Souza, and S. H. Raza. The gallery has also presented ambitious solo shows of younger artists, such as Abdullah Syed, Abir Karmakar, Salman Toor, Adeela Suleman, and G. R. Iranna. The gallery has collaborated with museums such as the Kiran Nadar Museum, New Delhi and the Asian Art Museum, San Francisco. Exhibitions have been reviewed and the gallery has been profiled by the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, The Times of London, Art Asia Pacific, ArtForum and the Financial Times.
