The Trailblazers

Bonhams introduces "The Trailblazers," an initiative that aims to showcase the work of contemporary South Asian artists. Co-led by Priya Singh, Specialist in Modern & Contemporary South Asian Art, and Shreya Ajmani, Editorial Contributor at Art She Says, Mash, and Communications & Social Media Manager at Mumbai Gallery Weekend — the project aims to be an ongoing collaboration that brings together emerging and mid-career artists alongside household names.

The objective is to give artists access to the global art market by often presenting them with their inaugural auction appearances and simultaneously offering collectors the opportunity to discover contemporary art they may not have previously encountered within the auction sphere. Through personalized interviews and essays, the initiative strives to provide each participating artist with the ability to weave a cohesive narrative of their distinct perspective and practice.

Edition one of "The Trailblazers" will take place from February 20-28, 2023.
