MODERN ART GALLERY

To quote Robert Henri “I am interested in art as a means to living a life and not as a means of living.” Based on this premise Modern Art Gallery was launched. Located in the area-adjoining Kashmere Gate Monument, which is at the fringe of the Walled City of Shahajahanbad, the Gallery represents the numerous layers of contemporary colours, which have resulted in a rich, eclectic and vibrant, mix on canvas and paper. Their endeavour is aimed at supporting talented artists to exhibit works and also to expose to aesthetic series of art. Since its inception, Modern Art Gallery (MAG) has promoted contemporary Indian art through exhibitions, charity programs, joint Launches and much more. Over the last few years, the gallery has become the locus through which the works of both modern and contemporary artists have reached the public. MAG’s position as an artistic interlocutor with the public is especially vital in Central Delhi India because of the lack of any such Gallery in close vicinity. They have worked closely with some of India’s finest artists from different generations and a long track record with the Bengali artists like Subrata Gangopadhya, Kishor Roy, Krishnendu Porel, J P Dutta, and the younger generation of Parthashee Chanda, Dubyendu Ukil, Shyamal Mukherjee, Ajay Bhowmik etc. The team’s star photographer is Shobha Jolly, while Sunita and Nitya are the leading sculptors.
