The Kiran Nadar Museum of Art was established as the first private museum of art, exhibiting modern and contemporary works from India and the subcontinent. The museum intends to exemplify the dynamic relationship between art and culture through its exhibitions, publications, educational and public programs. The core of this collection highlights a magnificent generation of Progressives such as F N Souza, V S Gaitonde, M F Hussain, Tyeb Mehta, Akbar Padmasee, and Ram Kumar. With artworks from Pakistan, Bangladesh and the diaspora, the collection transcends national boundaries and extends itself into the nuances of transcultural processes and shared histories. It represents a variety of media, from painting, drawing, sculpture, prints, photography, and video to monumental installations and assemblages. The highlights in the collection are Yatra: The Rooted Nomad on M F Hussain, The Black Sun by S H Raza, and the works of Atul Dodiya, Mithu Sen, Navjot Altaf, Pushpamala N., and Parthiv Shah.
