This year, in collaboration with AuTypical.in, Dhoomimal Gallery has established a section to present the professional-level creations of young autistic artists in order to illustrate the principles of inclusion and raise awareness of autism. The oldest contemporary art gallery in India was founded in 1936 and is called Dhoomimal Gallery.

Several young artists who are currently well-known and have made a name for themselves in the art community were honoured by Dhoomimal. We provide four scholarships each year to emerging artists (working in a variety of media) who receive the approval of our eminent jury. Renowned artists like KS Kulkarni, Krishen Khanna, Bimal Dasgupta, GR Iranna, Pooja Iranna, Jagannath Panda, etc. have served on our jury in prior years. Reputable individuals who have received awards in the past include Sonia Khurana, GR Iranna, Nidhi Aggarwal, Hemraj and many others.

Initiated in 2020, AuTypical.in serves the public interest by promoting the artistic talents of children and young adults with autism. On this internet forum, autistic artists from all over India–from small towns to major cities–have displayed their works. The inclusion of autistic artists this year will add a fresh flavour to professional art for the first time among the art galleries in New Delhi and will be treated differently. There aren’t many examples of these socially beneficial events anywhere in the world.

Speaking about the event, Uday Jain, Proprietor, Dhoomimal Gallery, said, “In its 31st year the Ravi Jain annual exhibition has provided a budding platform to over 100 artists and sculptors. Late Ravi Jain always believed that if the art movement is to be perpetuated in the country, we cannot rely on the seniors alone and new talent should constantly be nurtured and promoted. The participation is from all over India across all medium painting, sculpture, installation, digital and judging is done by an eminent panel of senior artists, sculptors, critics and collectors. Hence the standard of the artists selected is quite high.”
