What About Art? (WAA) is a professional arts management agency based in Mumbai since 2009. The agency provides specialised services for art projects management, creative direction, installation, production and conservation of art collections.

The agency was set up by French arts manager Eve Lemesle, with the aim of filling a crucial gap in professional services in the visual arts sector in India. WAA caters to all forms of visual arts that includes sculpture, installation, painting, video, among others.

WAA also runs a residency that offers studio spaces and accommodation to artists and curators, and a project space that encourages video-based projects through exhibition, screening, talks and workshops.
