Mumbai-based poet, art theorist, independent curator and assistant editor with The Hindu is in Hyderabad, courtesy Kalakriti’s annual festival, to deliver a talk on “Six Spaces”. He will expatiate on art-markets in India and the reason they cannot function optimally if they are only looked at from an economic point of view.

It is only when specialised knowledge bases are integrated into transactions in this market, that they will start functioning at a less superficial and more sustainable level. In this respect, Hoskote will speak about six institutions, the six spaces that play a pivotal role – galleries, museums, stores etc. He will discuss what role they currently play and what level of functionality they can move on to.

He is the author of seven books, including three collections of poetry, the most recent being The Sleepwalker’s Archive (2001); an edited anthology, Reasons for Belonging (2002); a critical biography of the artist Jehangir Sabavala, Pilgrim, Exile, Sorcerer (1998); and a monograph on the painter Sudhir Patwardhan, The Complicit Observer (2004).

Hoskote has received the Sanskriti Award for Literature (1996) and the British Council/ Poetry Society of India Annual Competition (1997). In 2004, the National Academy Of Letters honoured him with the Sahitya Akademi Golden Jubilee Award.
