MUMBAI.- Jhaveri Contemporary has announced that after eight successful years in Malabar Hill, Mumbai, the gallery will move to a new home in Colaba, the city’s historic and art district. The new gallery space in Devidas Mansion on Mereweather Road will open on 1 September 2018 with an inaugural group exhibition that explores the gallery’s journey thus far and investigates the site of its new location.

Jhaveri Contemporary’s new gallery space, situated on the third floor of a 19th century heritage building, allows the gallery to grow its footprint by a third. Comprising two exhibition spaces, the new gallery also benefits from four-metre-high ceilings. The design aesthetic breaks from the conventions of the white cube, harmoniously balancing a contemporary feel with original features including raw concrete walls and exposed beams. Large windows, with frames made from reclaimed Burma Teak, and two external balconies offer abundant natural light and spectacular views of the Gateway of India, one of the city’s most important landmarks, and the Arabian Sea.

Since opening in 2010, Jhaveri Contemporary has provided an important platform to showcase the work of artists with connections to South Asia, including Simryn Gill, Rana Begum, and Raghubir Singh, among others. In 2010, founders Amrita and Priya Jhaveri also produced Mumbai-born, UK-based artist Sir Anish Kapoor's first-ever public exhibition in India, a landmark event in the country's art world.

“We cannot wait to share the new space with the city we love and would like to thank all the Jhaveri Contemporary artists, our colleagues, collaborators and collectors for their support over the past eight years. We hope the new gallery will inspire artists and curators to present exciting exhibitions that engage and enlighten by turn.” – Amrita and Priya Jhaveri
