The Kiran Nadar Museum of Art reopens from July 13th onwards. On view at the museum is the exhibition, ‘Narrating from the Museum Archives and Collection- 10 years of KNMA’. Celebrating a decade in existence in 2020, this extraordinary exhibition was cut short due to the various lockdowns. This is another chance to catch it, and enjoy an extraordinary glimpse into the KNMA archives.
This exhibition includes the work of renowned artists like J Sultan Ali, Ranbir Kaleka, VS Gaitonde, SH Raza, Ram Kumar, Akbar Padamsee, FN Souza, Tyeb Mehta, MF Husain, Krishen Khanna, Ida Kar, KP Krishnakumar, Surendran Nair, Jitish Kallat, Himmat Shah and many more.
This exhibition itself offers a snapshot of KNMA’s archive and collection, built over the course of ten years with very careful consideration by renowned collector, Founder and Chairperson, Kiran Nadar. Her contribution to the art world has helped to realize her vision of providing a platform to recognize talented artists, allowing them to access larger audiences and build appreciation for their artworks within India and abroad.
In keeping with health and safety requirements, there are strict Covid protocols in place to ensure the wellbeing of visitors at the Noida location. The Museum will be open Tuesday to Friday, in accordance with weekend lockdown as proposed by the state government.
The Kiran Nadar Museum of Art
Established by art collector Kiran Nadar in 2010, the Kiran Nadar Museum of Art (KNMA) is the first privately-funded museum of art exhibiting modern and contemporary works from India and the sub-continent. Located in New Delhi NCR, India’s capital city, KNMA hosts an ever-growing collection of artworks that both highlights a magnificent generation of 20th-century Indian painters from the post- Independence decades and engages with the different art practices of younger contemporaries.
Sponsored by the Shiv Nadar Foundation, KNMA is focused on bridging the gap between art and the public and fostering a museum-going culture in India. KNMA aims to become a place for confluence, dialogue and collaboration through its curatorial initiatives and exhibitions, school and college workshops, art appreciation discourses, symposiums, and public programs.
