Aakriti Art Gallery describes itself as having a curatorial focus on contemporary visionaries, young upcoming talents, and historical masters. They are committed to capturing a high level and diversity of contemporary Indian art in their collection. Crucially, Aakriti is more excited about the creativity of lesser-known emerging artists than about representing those that are already famous, and consequently, it organizes the regular series of GenNext exhibitions to promote young talent who they believe to be pioneering original and unique developments in their art. The gallery itself is a large space right in the heart of Kolkata, with two separate wings: one displaying paintings and photographs, and the other showcasing the best of contemporary sculpture. A seasonal program of public events is held onsite, so keep your eye out for these popular activities when you visit Kolkata.
