Podcast: 5 Questions to Amar Singh
Amar Singh is a champion for the legalization of homosexuality. He's also the face behind Christie's second brilliant NFT show. And if that wasn't enough - he's even been praised by luminaries including Andrea Bocelli and Muhammad Ali!
Activist and gallerist Amar Singh’s achievements are hard to capture in a few short sentences. As a human rights defender, he’s helped legalise homosexuality in India. As a gallerist, he’s not afraid to colour outside the lines of the conforms of London’s gallery scene, pioneering the sales of accessibly-priced NFT works by female artists. As a conversationalist, he’s energised, optimistic, and has witty, informed responses to all of our hard and weird questions (which we didn’t send beforehand, promise).
Last year, Singh pledged $5 million worth of art by female, LGBTQ+ and minority artists to museums by 2025. To kick this off, he donated a work by Art Fix Collect’s Raphael Adjetey Adjei Mayne to the permanent collection of Harvard University. “This work must be in an institution. It is a celebration of women, a celebration of Black women, a celebration of hope,” he says proudly.
Join us on Amar’s sofa in London to discuss this plight, as well as his own arty indulgences and in what realm of space he’d curate his dream show. Check out the podcast here or listen to it on Spotify or on Apple Podcast.
