THE ARTS FAMILY (TAF)
The Arts Family (TAF) is a London based independent non-profit initiative connecting the global community of artists, gallerists, writers, curators, collectors and other art market professionals interested in Contemporary and Modern arts. We aim to inspire those with passion for arts through our educational talks and raise the profile of artists who apply for our TAF Awards. TAF does not represent artists, but connects art professionals forming meaningful relationships. The Arts Family runs various programmes that support Contemporary artists from South Asia such as TAF Talks, TAF Awards and Exhibitions giving them international exposure and recognition.
TAF is proud to present Three Editions of the Emerging Artist Award- South Asia 2022, 2023 and 2024 presented to deserving artists from the region, chosen by a renowned panel of international judges.
