    Director General Message

    I am delighted to share that it is indeed a proud moment for me to take charge as the first Director General of the National Gallery of Modern Art (NGMA), India's premier national institution devoted to modern and contemporary visual art practices.

    This role comes with a major sense of responsibility towards this pioneering institution, the artist community in India and abroad and towards the citizens of this deeply-rooted and diverse country. The iconic work of modern masters that the NGMA in New Delhi, along with its two branches in Mumbai and Bengaluru, houses and exhibits inspire us to celebrate each day and we want to spread this joy of pure passion, insight and hard work with each one visiting the NGMA. The works of art from our collection facilitate us to embark on new journeys and serve as a fertile ground for new contemporary practices. To my friends and visitors from overseas, I welcome you more than ever to join us in celebrating this rich legacy and I firmly believe in broadening the institution's horizon. I look forward to collaborations and partnerships with National and international institutions and will explore all possibilities for extension of cultural relations. I am certain that this would enable NGMA to present Indian art and artists to a wider global audience.
