International Sculpture Conference: Manav Gupta

Annual Gathering of the International Sculpture Centre | New Jersey, USA | October 10th - 15th, 2023

“Manav Gupta, one of India’s foremost contemporary artists, is known for installations, paintings, sculptures and large-scale public art projects. He has conceptualized art for sustainable living for three decades pioneering interdisciplinary collaborations and engagement practices, involving diverse stakeholders.

Among his highly acclaimed monumental projects are Tree of Life (2010); Shrinking River at National Museum Pretoria, South Africa (2013); Ganga Waterfront, at IHC New Delhi (2015); Ganga to Mississippi outreach (2015-16), Excavated Museum in a Mall (2017); Sculpture Garden at Amrita Shergill Marg (2017-2018), Arth–Art for Earth, punctuating 27 acres at IGNCA, hosted by the Government of India (2018). Water the New Gold – ‘City in a City’ in Bhubaneswar (2019). Most of these featured multiple installations, including the seminal Rain, Rainforest and Beehive Garden. Quoting Sculpture magazine : “Gupta’s art affirms the age-old sanctity of earth and clay, assembling everyday objects made by potters from across India to create huge installations that convey hope, passion, and the journey and transience of life. He creates contemporary yet timeless and powerful stories…while transforming the familiar into something completely unconventional, unexpected, and magical.”

Gupta’s works have been sold by Christie’s, Bonham’s, Philip de Pury and are in several private and public collections.”

“I am simply walking the path of infinity with a life dedicated to art. If my humble drop in the ocean can help bring about the change in thinking that is so needed in today’s crass, commercialised, mechanised existence, if it can add a dab of spiritual context to the world as it takes art and culture as a vehicle of change across boundaries, it makes my artistic process that much more fulfilling.”
