DAG at Dr. Bhau Daji Lad Museum

Earlier in 2021, DAG opened two new exhibitions called New Found Lands and Birds of India at its New York and New Delhi galleries respectively. Following their success, DAG has brought them to Mumbai’s Dr. Bhau Daji Lad Museum where they will be on view from 27 November 2021 until 16 February 2022. Click here to know more about the two exhibitions.

Indian Blue: From Realism to Abstraction

Like spoken dialects, colours contain multiple—at times conflicting—meanings that are moulded by a universal base and many regional variances. Blue has been a constant presence in Indian modern art, and during modernism’s transition from colonial-era naturalism to post-Independence abstraction, it evolved from a representational pigment to having deep metaphorical value. Presented by DAG, Indian Blue: From Realism to Abstraction traces how Indian modernists first ‘raised’ themselves to the colonial ideal and then successfully broke away from it, through a study of the colour blue.

The Wonder of India

The Wonder of India: Explorations Through 19th and 20th Century Art exhibition in DAG’s New York gallery has some stunning surprises in store for you. In addition to all modern favourites—examples from the Bengal School and works by the Progressives—it includes Early Views of India, Company Paintings and Kalighat Pats.
