A peer of the aforementioned Genesis gallery, Galerie 88 has been in business for almost as long and has also had a profound impact on contemporary art in India, having curated over 200 exhibitions, including international art shows in London and Singapore. Through its own publication series, the gallery has promoted information about the art world, producing researched catalogs and books on contemporary Indian art. Their ambitious management has seen them successfully develop two additional gallery spaces in Kolkata and another branch in South Mumbai. Exhibitions attract huge crowds and range from showcases of graphic art to a series of paintings titled A Village in Bengal. The gallery has also hosted the collection from India’s Festival for Modern and Contemporary Art, representing far more than the local Kolkata art community, with work from artists such as M F Husain, whose last paintings have also been shown at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum.
