Bangalore Arrives on the Art Museum MAP
“One can say it without fear of dispute that India is not really your museum-lover’s haven. Most of our museum culture survives from the British rule and whatever is left is dominated by elitist spaces where the fear of esoteric art consumption and dialogue often hinders the casual visitor. Though history and memorial museums do make their way into unsuspecting tourists’ itineraries, the art museum has failed to be a phenomenon.
But it’s a time for reflection in more ways than one as regards culture and travel, and it couldn’t have been more opportune for the Museum of Art and Photography to come up in our midst. The haute entrant on the country’s museum-scape can challenge a lot of your beliefs when it comes to art and image-making. Situated in Bengaluru, the new-age space is set to open its doors this year.”
