Welcome to the Cowasji Jehangir Hall, where the modern arts come to life in the heart of Mumbai’s busy Colaba neighborhood!
This museum, proudly run by the National Gallery of Modern Art (NGMA) in Delhi, is packed with over 20,000 square feet of exhibition space, split into four galleries on different levels for your viewing pleasure.
Step inside and you’ll find a mix of permanent NGMA artifacts and temporary exhibitions that change with the seasons (and the artists). This historic building has been around since 1911, but don’t let its age fool you – the interiors received a stylish makeover in 1996 courtesy of architect Romi Khosla.
You’ll find marble flooring, interesting teak and chromium staircases, and even a few semi-circle balconies, once the building’s horse-shoe balconies, now transformed into exhibition space. And if you’re in the mood for a little education with your art-gazing, there are also spaces set aside for seminars and audio-visual presentations.
But let’s talk about the star of the show: the art. You’ll see works from legends like Akbar Padamsee, MF Hussain, SH Raza, and Jahangir Sabavala, all under one roof.
So come on down and immerse yourself in the world of modern contemporary art at the Cowasji Jehangir Hall, where the past meets the present in the most beautiful way.
