Nita Ambani has taken the initiative to promote Indian art globally and for that reason she has given a generous gift to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York in first week of October, 2017. The museum will exhibit Indian art for the next coming few years. This will help us to spread knowledge and also influence other people by displaying our accomplishments of Indian arts and artists in the world. This event will celebrate Indian Art across the world.
Series of Exhibitions:
The first exhibition will be of Raghubir Singh Photographs titled “Modernism on the Ganges”, which has already opened on October 11, this will present his work from the last unpublished projects of the late 1990s. Other exhibitions will range from early Buddhist art to Mughal art and finally to contemporary Indian sculpture. These exhibitions will last up to 1 year each for a total of five exhibitions. Nita Ambani’s Reliance Foundation said that three important exhibitions will take place at The MET Breuer and the remaining two at The MET Fifth Avenue. This will enable global visitors to learn more about the Indian art, culture and heritage.
Nita Ambani’s Words at The MET:
Nita Ambani is very delighted with this collaboration and said that this will allow Indian art to be displayed at an iconic institute on a global level and encourages to keep continuing our work in the art world. She hopes that this partnership will be a wonderful way to learn, share and grow. In the recent past, Nita Ambani was honored by The MET for her philanthropic work in the areas of rural transformation, health, education, disaster response, urban renewal, promotion of arts, and women’s empowerment. She had said that the recognition is a tribute to the foundation that will inspire everyone at Reliance Foundation to do their best and stay committed to social empowerment and sustainable development to make this world a better place for the next generation. And has continued her noble work over the time.
In 2016 Nasreen Mohamedi’s first ever exhibition was conducted in United States by Nita Ambani and Reliance Foundation and it was also one of The Met Breuer’s inaugural exhibitions. The Foundation has also sponsored Lord Paintings at the Art institute of Chicago in September 2015.
The convention centre that is being built may also also have Nita Ambani’s own museum at Bandra-Kurla Complex, Mumbai. This will help in reaching out to more people in India and will inspire them to make a career in arts.
