Kiran Nadar Museum of Art
The first private museum of art exhibiting modern and contemporary works from India and the sub-continent.
- Its collection highlights a magnificent generation of Indian painters from the post-Independent decades and the different art practices of the younger contemporaries.
- The museum spread over 34,000 square feet has hosted several critically acclaimed exhibitions that have celebrated modern and contemporary art.
- It is plugging the lack of art promotion in the public sphere and is working toward encouraging art appreciation.
Established at the initiative of the avid art collector Kiran Nadar, the Kiran Nadar Museum of Art (KNMA) opened its doors to the public in January 2010. KNMA is a non-commercial, not-for-profit organisation sponsored by the Shiv Nadar Foundation that intends to exemplify the dynamic relationship between art and culture through its exhibitions, publications, educational, and public programmes.
In Kiran Nadar’s words, “Though the idea of opening a private art museum occurred with the intention of sharing my art collection with the larger public, I was also acutely aware of the existing dearth of institutional spaces that could bring visibility to modern and contemporary art from India and the subcontinent.”
KNMA aspires to become a place for confluence, through its curatorial initiative and exhibitions, school and college workshops, art appreciation discourses, symposiums and public programmes. It is focused on bridging the gap between art and the public and fostering a museum-going culture in India.
- Saturday Workshops
The museum seeks to generate spaces where children and their families can explore art together through hands on activities, gallery trails and storytelling sessions. These workshops take place every Saturday and are among the most popular programmes at the museum. The workshops include interactive programmes for children of all ages to participate and encourage them to get initiated in art making through various art and craft techniques.
This February, let your creativity shine through with all new art forms and structures. Come to the Saturday Workshops at KNMA from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
- Wall Hanging (22 February)
- 3D House (29 February)
