DAG at The Claridges
New gallery space, New Delhi

We are pleased to announce the opening our gallery operations to the most exclusive vicinity in New Delhi, at The Claridges, on A.P.J Kalam Road – the gallery will be operational and open for viewing 30 September, 2019. We believe this to be a fitting address for art lovers in a neighborhood that amplifies the charm of Lutyens’s Delhi. Exhibitions at The Claridges will be curated from the DAG collection. They will provide a range of choices across major movements and periods spread across different geographies of art practice in India, and by Indian artists overseas. The first of these exhibitions, The Sixties Show, part of a series, is aimed at drawing attention to the feverish pace of art practice in the 1960s, an important decade during which the pull of the Progressive Artists’ Group remained strong, Group 1890 was established, and experimentations in indigenous solutions became the norm. Artworks from this important decade have been carefully selected to represent the artists and their experimentation during this period. The new gallery space will open on Monday, 30 September 2019, and the exhibition will run until the 23 of November.

Drishyakala (by DAG in collaboration with ASI)
Inauguration by Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi

It was an honour to have Prime Minister - Shri Narendra Modi inaugurate the Art Museum Drishyakala (By DAG in collaboration with ASI) at the iconic Red Fort’s Barrack No. 4 on Wednesday, 23 January 2019. After inaugurating the space the Honourable Prime Minister expressed, ‘Works of eminent artists like Raja Ravi Varma, Gurudev Tagore, Amrita Sher-Gil, Abanindranath Tagore, Nandalal Bose, Gaganendranath Tagore, Sailoz Mookherjea and Jamini Roy are on display at the exhibition. I would specially urge art lovers to visit Drishyakala, which will take you through the finest aspects of Indian art and culture. There are four historical exhibitions, spread over three centuries, with over 450 works or art!’ The Prime Minister was accompanied by the Minister of Culture, Shri Mahesh Sharma and given a walkthrough of the exhibition by Ashish Anand - MD & CEO of DAG. Drishyakala opens to the public on 05 February until 31 December 2019. The museum will be open from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM and will be closed on Mondays.

Celebrating 25 Years of Art
Our New Identity

Established in 1993, in what was New Delhi’s hip and happening cultural urban ‘village’, and christened DAG - who would have thought that simple desire to promote art in the capital would go on to become a powerhouse for Indian modern art? Ashish Anand’s keen sense led him to a primary study of what was a laggard art scene with no acknowledgement of the masters who had gone into decline. As befitting that responsibility, and its expansion with galleries in Mumbai and New York, a decision was taken in December 2017 to rename the establishment DAG, a mantle that extended to encompass a diverse range of programming options that have included research, archiving, publications, education, and the loan of works for important international exhibitions and biennales. Our participation in international art fairs and production of historic exhibitions have transcended geographical locations to create conversations around modern art from the region, thus stepping up our presence in curatorial practices in museums and in cultural and art discourses. DAG’s new branding commemorates its 25 years with a range of programmes spread through the year. Watch this space for details.
