Art museum opens in mall, looks forward to footfalls

Kiran Nadar at her new museum

Nalini Malani and Sudarshan Shetty bring us up to speed with art that is extremely contemporary and there are younger artists like Ranjana Shettar and Jitish Kallat who represent the here and now.

Each room or partition showcases one or two large work by one or two artists so there is no sense of crowding, while the lighting gives each work a luminous glow.

"I do not have a favourite work but I am happy to see works like Saurashtra return to their motherland," says Nadar.

Given the value of the artworks housed here, the place is crawling with security guards, and visitors will have to leave their bags behind while entering this art space.

The museum will be open 10.30 am to 6.30 pm on all days except Mondays and government holidays.
