The Museum of Art and Photography (MAP) has an important place in the Indian artistic landscape. The MAP Museum, which recently opened in Bangalore, in southern India, has an extensive collection of Indian works, says indian express. “Thanks to the research and conservation center, there are places for artists and curators, and more than 5,000 books are stored here,” continues the Indian newspaper.

India already has private art galleries such as Sri Chitra Art Gallery (in Thiruvananthapuram), Kiran Nadar Art Museum (in New Delhi) and many other private museums currently under construction. For Abhishek Poddar, the 55-year-old philanthropist behind MAP, museums and arts institutions don’t compete with each other. Moreover, the thousands of museums that exist in India are mainly relics of the Rajbras.
