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 interviews and raise the profile of artists who apply for our TAF Awards. TAF does not represent artist but connects art professionals forming meaningful relationships.

TAF is proud to present the Second Edition of the Emerging Artist Award- South Asia 2023 presented to deserving emerging candidates from the region, chosen by a renowned panel of international judges.
