Join us in celebrating one year of inspiration, creativity, cultural exploration and making art accessible to all at MAP. In the last year, we have had the privilege of connecting with arts and cultural enthusiasts from around the world; opened seven exhibitions that showcased different mediums, with narratives that allowed visitors to find a little bit of themselves within the show; hosting a multitude of engaging events and programming; and building a community of people who interact with art in ways that encourage humanity, empathy and a deeper understanding of the world we live in.

As we mark this milestone, we invite you to immerse yourself in a world of discovery, innovation and art. MAP invites you to continue the journey with us as we shape the future of art and culture in Bengaluru and beyond.
