In 1956, John D. Rockefeller the 3rd launched Asia Society—a nonprofit haven for art lovers across the globe that would mark the beginning of a decades-long engagement with contemporary art. Its Indian arm was founded in 2006, thus becoming the organisation's only South Asian centre. Under the aegis of Asia Society, the Asia Arts Game Changer Awards were brought to India in 2017 by Asia Society India to be a purposeful exploration of what makes good art endure.

After seven successful editions of recognising South Asia's unbridled creative voice, the eighth edition of the Awards will take place on 2 February, 2024 in New Delhi, as an invite-only gala during the India Art Fair that will bring together over hundreds of notable artists, diplomats, collectors, patrons and heads of cultural institutions from around the world. “The Asia Arts Game Changer Awards India are a way to catalyse connections across borders through scholarship and collaboration; they bring together a community that cares deeply about art and the evolving South Asian identity,” elaborates Inakshi Sobti, CEO, Asia Society India Centre.
