Ambika Rajgopal, originally from New Delhi, currently resides in London. She has an MA in Contemporary Art Theory from Goldsmiths, University of London and an MSc in Art, Law and Business from Christie’s Education, London.
Ambika has previously worked in the Indian and Islamic Department at Christie’s, South Kensington, London. In addition to this, she has written extensively on art, with a special focus on the Asian art scene. She has written for Art Radar, Saffronart Blog, Avenir and Culture Trip, among others.
Ambika spends her time cruising through museums, pop-up galleries and cultural institutions searching for that flicker of novelty, which captures her imagination and sends it soaring. When she isn’t culture-vulturing, Ambika can be found holed up in her crib reading something completely unrelated to art theory (usually Irvine Welsh or J. M. Coetzee); or clanging on her piano, in the hope of creating something akin to music.
In 2015, Ambika, in collaboration with Delhi Art Gallery, wrote a monograph on the Bombay Progressive modernist - Krishen Khanna, which was published by the gallery. Ambika has previously worked in London, New Delhi and Frankfurt.
