Situated in the heart of Bengaluru, India, MAP’s building will include art galleries, an auditorium, an art and research library, an education centre, a specialised research and conservation facility, as well as a terrace cafe.
As one of India’s most prominent collectors, Abhishek Poddar has acquired an extensive collection of Indian art, photography and textiles over the past three decades, which forms the nucleus of MAP’s collection.
MAP’s mission is to take art and culture to the heart of the community, making it accessible to diverse audiences, and to create a museum-going culture that encourages people to experience art and heritage in new ways.
A state-of-the-art conservation lab, set up with the support of Tata Trusts in 2019, occupies a significant place in the MAP’s five-storey building. While conserving our collection, we hope to also provide expertise to enrich the field of restoration in India.
The active loans programme at MAP enables the objects in the collection to be accessible to several cultural institutions around the world, and helps in building stronger networks within a global art community.
