The IntXchange’s mission, unprecedented in the region, is to forge a self-sustaining reciprocal relationship between Philadelphia and the ascendant cultures and economies of South Asia. In collaboration with the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the IntXchange has made possible the Initiative for South Asian Contemporary Art, honoring eminent artists from South Asia and stimulating new connections between the Indian Subcontinent and the Philadelphia region.
Among the leading lights of South Asian art to have visited Philadelphia under the auspices of the IntXchange are Jitish Kallat, whose epic multi-media installation “Public Notice 3” earned him major renown in the United States, and Atul Dodiya, the Indian painter whose sought-after work has been described by Darielle Mason, Curator of Indian and Himalayan Art at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, as “imbuing the Subcontinent’s fine art with a remarkable vitality and energy.”
Through the symbolism and cultural currency of contemporary art, the Raju Foundation’s IntXchange has catalyzed a robust dialogue, drawing artists, collectors and investors to Philadelphia from London, India and beyond. With an eye toward forging new, lasting connections, the IntXchange is determined to create dynamic new opportunities for productive cross-cultural partnerships with our region.
