From January 11 to 14, the vibrant city of Mumbai is gearing up for the 12th edition of the eagerly awaited Mumbai Gallery Weekend. This four-day cultural celebration promises to be more spectacular than ever, uniting 34 galleries and design venues across the city, from Colaba to Juhu.
The roster for this edition features both prestigious establishments and exciting newcomers, with galleries like Akara Contemporary, Gallery XXL, Method Juhu, and Vida Heydari Contemporary making their mark. Some galleries have even relocated, adding a dynamic element to the event, such as Anupa Mehta Contemporary Art's move from Lower Parel to Colaba and TARQ's shift from Colaba to Fort.
Since its inception in 2012, the Mumbai Gallery Weekend has been a catalyst for injecting vitality into the city's art scene. Over the years, it has evolved into one of Mumbai's premier cultural events, bringing together art collectors and enthusiasts. The core mission remains unchanged: to elevate the significance of art in the community.
This edition offers a diverse lineup of 34 galleries, ranging from established institutions like Chemould Prescott Road, DAG, and Chatterjee & Lal, to newer and niche spaces such as Art & Charlie, Nine Fish, and Chemould CoLab. The event, open and free for all, features spectacular opening and closing events across the city, becoming a tradition that grows richer with each passing year.
Beyond the galleries, the Mumbai Gallery Weekend 2024 is set to host a series of talks at the CSMVS museum in collaboration with the prestigious India Art Fair. Other events include a Young Collectors Program at Kathiwada City House, an off-site exhibition titled "Bombay Tilts Down" by CAMP, a performance by Tushar Adhav at Sassoon Docks, and a curated gallery hop with Art & Wonderment.
Organized by the team at Chemould Prescott Road, this year's event promises to be the city's largest coordinated art festival, offering an immersive and interactive experience for attendees. The Mumbai Gallery Weekend 2024 is not just an exhibition; it's a celebration of contemporary art, culture, and creativity.
