Situated within the Saket District Centre in New Delhi, Kiran Nadar Museum of Art is the first private museum in India dedicated to contemporary and modern arts. Established in 2010, the museum has a centre in Noida as well. Sprawling over an area of 18000 square feet, the repository mostly has the art collection from the 20th-century painters. However, it also features the young and contemporary talents. The idea of the museum has been inspired from similar depositories in the US- Guggenheim, MoMA, and the Whitney. Initially, Mrs Kiran Nadar started the venture by displaying exhibits in a cafeteria outside her husband’s office, but later the gallery moved to South Court Mall in Saket.
Currently, the museum boasts of an elaborate collection with more 4500 works of arts from painters dating back to the 19th century. The prominent works are from the celebrated Indian artists including M. F. Hussain, Raja Ravi Verma and Anish Kapoor. Other than the painting displays, the museum hosts regular workshops, seminars, symposiums, exotic art exhibitions and public programs.
