Bengaluru’s Museum of Art & Photography launches digitally with a virtual festival
“Ahead of its physical launch in 2021, Museum of Art & Photography launches digitally with a six-day virtual festival featuring experts in the field.
“The pandemic has changed the way we live. People still fear crowded public spaces and it will be a while before we return to life as we knew it,” says Kamini Sawhney, director, Museum of Art & Photography (MAP). When they started deliberating on a physical launch in 2020, the situation at hand was still miles away. The museum had planned to open in Bengaluru’s Kasturba Road with a collection of over 20,000 works spanning pre-modern art, popular culture, folk and tribal art, modern and contemporary art, textiles, craft and design, and photography.”
