India's first Sculpture Park was launched at the historic Madhavendra Palace of Nahargarh fort in 2017. It aims to promote tourism & contemporary art. Sat Saath Arts collaborated with the Rajasthan Govt to create this spectacular park of contemporary artworks. Year long exhibition includes artwork by Indian & International artists that are displayed both indoors & outdoors. Sculpture Park’s inaugural edition ended in Oct 2018, second edition in Dec 2019 & the third edition is open with a new set of artworks. Over 60 sculptures by 25 artists are displayed at the 20000sq ft courtyards. Some of the art presentations are River of Stones by Sir Richard Long using red stand-stones of the Aravalli Mountains, Prashant Pandey’s beautiful Kama work made out of marble chips, Municiple Demolition. Madhavendra Palace was built during the reign of Sawai Ram Singh II(1835-80) & Sawai Madho Singh II(1862-1922) The 9 apartments of the royal Zenana were built around a rectangular courtyard. These grand courtyard rooms were intricately painted with decorative murals. It was used as a seasonal retreat by Madho Singh & his wives.
The first contemporary public sculpture park in India and also one of the first examples of public and private partnership in the arts, The Sculpture Park at Madhavendra Palace in Nahargarh fort has turned an 18th-Century fortress into a Sculpture Gallery with works displayed throughout the meandering rooms and grand courtyards. Traditional Indian architecture creates a dramatic backdrop for the monumental works occupying central positions and more intimate works featured throughout the many rooms, awaiting discovery. Visitors are invited to meander through the palace, to encounter and experience each work in a range of settings and display. The Sculpture Park’s second edition opened December 9, 2018 and will run through July 1, 2020.
