With what fore­sight was the Je­hangir Art Gallery founded?

Smart Photography - - Industry Opinion -

Sir Cowasji Je­hangir, 2nd Baronet, founded the Je­hangir Art Gallery in 1952 with the pur­pose of pro­vid­ing a prom­i­nent plat­form for young and up­com­ing In­dian artists to show­case their work to the public. The over­all ob­jec­tive was to cre­ate an aware­ness to the public at large about the work of these young artists and pro­mote them at min­i­mum cost as there was no such fa­cil­ity ex­ist­ing at that time. Even to­day, it is the premier in­sti­tu­tion achiev­ing this ob­jec­tive.

How dif­fer­ent will the Ter­race Art Gallery be from the ex­ist­ing Je­hangir Art Gallery?

The Ter­race Art Gallery for Pho­tog­ra­phy and Vis­ual Art will be a pur­pose- de­signed space for show­cas­ing pho­tog­ra­phy as op­posed to paint­ings which are dis­played in the ex­ist­ing spa­ces of the Je­hangir Art Gallery.
