Gallery Plan

Shrine Empire was created in December 2008 from a merger of two existing galleries. Prior to the merger, both spaces worked together on exhibitions in India and Singapore as separate entities, known then as The Shrine Gallery and Empire Art. Shrine Empire gallery is now based in New Delhi and its directors, Anahita Taneja and Shefali Somani, have envisioned the gallery as a platform for presenting and promoting contemporary visual art practices.

Since its inception, Shrine Empire has consistently focused on encouraging a dialogic  approach with artists and curators in order to produce exhibitions and projects that critically engage with contemporary issues and concerns. Artists and curators from South Asia as well as the diaspora have been involved with the gallery's activities. The mission of Shrine Empire is to promote artists, curators and art-writers who are invested in re-defining the boundaries of contemporary art practice.For the past six years,the gallery has been engaged with the Art Scribes Award focussed on young art writers.The Gallery organizes for the winner to spend a month at an international residency.

The gallery currently represents the following artists; Anoli Perera, Fariba S Alam, Gautam Kansara, Priyanka Dasgupta, Puja Puri, Samanta Batra Mehta, Suchitra Gahlot and Tayeba Begum Lipi.
