Dr Alka Raghuvanshi, wears many hats for she is among the few authorities on the arts who traverses the folk and classical arts, performing and plastic arts, crafts and aesthetics with ease and is known for her crusading spirit for the arts. She is an unusual combination of scholarship and hands on person who has constantly strived to put the arts centre stage with her multi-disciplinary approach traversing the various media.

She is India's first trained art curator, having trained at the Goldsmiths College, London and the Museum of Modern Art in Oxford. A keen painter herself, she is able to perceive and experience the various arts from the vantage position of a doer as well as an onlooker.

In her writing career on the arts spanning nearly 32 years, she has documented an entire generation of artists and artists who have shaped the artistic heritage of the country captured in two books Dr Raghuvanshi—A Moment in Time with Legends of Indian Arts and Pathfinders—artistes of one world.


Presently Dr Raghuvanshi writes a weekly column in the Asian Age. She lives and works in New Delhi.
