It’s an alternative opportunity to immerse yourselves in an almost lifelike 360 degree panoramic experience of the museum using navigation tools that allow you to explore the artworks. The exhibition is a snapshot of KNMA’s archives collected over the course of ten years by founder and chairperson, Kiran Nadar.

Her contribution to the art world has provided a platform to recognise talented artists by allowing them to access larger audiences and build appreciation for their artworks within India and abroad. The digital expansion has helped new and diverse audiences to catch a glimpse into the world of art.

Established in January 2010, KNMA was initiated by the avid art collector Kiran Nadar.

The Kiran Nadar Museum of Art became the first private museum of art exhibiting contemporary and modern works from India and the sub-continent.

The ever-growing collection of KNMA is largely fixated on significant trajectories. Its core collection highlights a magnificent generation of Indian painters from the 20th century’s post-independent decades while it equally engages with different art practices of the younger contemporaries.
