Neha Kirpal, director, founder, and co-owner of the India Art Fair, is handing over the reins to Jagdip Jagpal, reports Anny Shaw of the Art Newspaper. Kirpal will still have an active role in the fair and will continue to sit on its board.
“With Jagdip’s strong background in both the commercial and public art sector, she is ideally placed to take the India Art Fair to its next level of potential, in India and beyond,” Kirpal said.
Previously, Jagpal served as a consultant for the New Art Exchange; senior project coordinator at the Whitworth Art Gallery, the Manchester Museum, and the Manchester Art Gallery; and International Program Manager at Tate. Most recently, she worked with New North and South, a network of eleven arts organizations across South Asia and the North of England, on a program of artist commissions and exhibitions. Currently, she is a governor of the London School of Economics and a member of the development board at the Royal College of Art.
