Established in 1997
Threshold Art Gallery, established in 1997, is a conceptual convergence of artists that explore the sensitivity and richness of art from the subcontinent, taking on aesthetic concerns that address contemporary realities, philosophical ponderings and mythological concerns of the artists the gallery represents. For over 25 years, the gallery has pursued its mission to identify and enable future artistic talent. Threshold prides itself on the diversity of expression, material and demographics presented through well researched and sensitively curated exhibitions. Our artists include those who work with traditional materials as well as those creating process-oriented works.
The gallery provides a supportive platform for blazing new trails by crossing the ‘threshold’ between the known and the possible.
Tunty Chauhan, Director
Tunty Chauhan established Threshold in 1997. She has curated exhibitions like New Paradigms I, II and III which drew acclaim for curatorial sensitivity. The other important exhibitions that followed were Body, Mind and Soul, Mapping Memories, Remembrances of Voices Past, The Lost Sparrow, Humour, Wit & Satire, Revisiting Beauty, Bakhiya, Bind/Bound, Nest, Myth-making and Divine Animals, Reflecting the Self and more recently, Tarshito’s solo exhibition Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam at the Bihar Museum.
Her work has been sustained and nourished over the years through her relationship with artists and love for travel. ‘Mapping Memories’ was a living project born out of this passion. It is an ongoing journey that has covered three continents.
Her well-honed intuition and discerning eye led her to collaborate and bring forth some hidden gems like Priya Ravish Mehra, V. Ramesh, Shanti Swaroopini, Achia Anzi and Anindita Bhattacharya among others. The artists she works with have been collected and showcased by leading Museums and Biennales, nationally and internationally. More recently V. Ramesh, at the American University Museum in Washington, Priya Ravish Mehra at the Kochi Muziris Biennale and Philadelphia Museum of Art and Achia Anzi at the Yinchuan Biennale.
Tunty’s vision is to incubate a space that not only promotes art through exhibitions but to encourage a discursive field through a regular program of discussions and workshops. She currently lives and works in New Delhi where Gallery Threshold, is one of the well-established, though quieter galleries.
