The Kiran Nadar Museum of Art (KNMA)

Established in 2010 by Kiran Nadar, The Kiran Nadar Museum of Art is India’s first private art museum that aims to exemplify the dynamic relationship between arts and culture, giving a plat-form to India’s most talented artists and bridging the gap between art and the public at large through exhibitions, publications, educational and public programs. KNMA is a not-for-profit organisation that works on a strictly non-commercial model. 

The museum boasts 5000 plus works of art in its collection. It has been a part of more than 100 International exhibitions and Art Exchange programs since 2010 and has had 15,000+ interna-tional visitors from around the world

Gallery Latitude 28

Founded by Bhavna Kakar who is also the Director, Latitude 28 has been imagined as an incuba-tion space, generating ideas through curatorial projects, site-specific artworks, artist talks and curated walks. It aims to cultivate a space where collectors and art enthusiasts can interact with younger artists and their practices. It also provides a horizontal environment where younger art-ists are able to contextualise their work alongside the masters of Indian art, experiment with me-dium, material and institutional critique. Gallery Latitude 28 has supported Kartik Sood, Anindi-ta Dutta, Deepjyoti Kalita, and Shweta Bhattad in their innovative practices, exhibiting them alongside veterans such as Anupam Sud and Baiju Parthan. The outfit maintains an outlook that accommodates South Asian art practices and has neo-miniaturist artists like Muhammad Zeeshan, Waseem Ahmed and Mohammad Ali Talpur in its fold.
