Mumbai Gallery Weekend (MGW) is a unique, collective initiative started in 2012 by leading contemporary art galleries of Mumbai. Its prime objective is to engage not only existing but also potential collectors and supporters of the arts, in order to broaden the reach and relevance of contemporary art. Since its inception, the Weekend has featured an international level of art and conversation set within an eclecti range of locations across the city.
Entering its fifth year, the Mumbai Gallery Weekend 2017 will take place over three days, from 20th – 22nd January. It includes a range of events for everyone – including exhibitions, walkthroughs, lecture and panel discussions. The host galleries – Chatterjee & Lal, Chemould Prescott Road, Galerie Mirchandani + Steinruecke, Lakeeren Gallery, Project 88, Sakshi Gallery, Akara Art and Tarq – will serve as the setting against which a program of additional events have been planned. The galleries will host openings at their respective locations on January 20th, followed by walkthroughs on the January 21st, where the artists or curators themselves will lead groups through their exhibitions. The collateral events and institutions would also be open across all venues in Mumbai from Colaba to Bandra.
