The Centre of International Modern Art (CIMA) opened in 1993 under the auspices of ABP Pvt. Ltd., a leading Indian media group known for its moorings in culture. It was designed under the guidance of renowned art galleries and museums in London and New York. In a short span, CIMA has emerged as one of the premier art centers of India. It has organized nearly hundred exhibitions that have won critical and popular acclaim in India and abroad, and has also been responsible for catalyzing creative excellence. For the past few years CIMA has implemented several projects in association with national and international museums and educational institutions. It holds regularly, interdisciplinary interactions and seminars, presided over by scholars, artists, directors and performers of international repute. CIMA has, thereby, focused attention on the finest talents of the contemporary art scene. Under the auspices of CIMA, the Art & Heritage Foundation has been set up recently to augment the cause of art and heritage projects – national, regional and international and, in collaboration with CIMA, has initiated the hugely popular CIMA AWARD Project. The aim of the project is to recognize and reward young artists from across India for their talent and creativity. It is a unique initiative providing a platform for artists from smaller towns, semi urban and rural areas, to get adequately promoted and nurtured.
