The Overview

Established by mother–daughter duo Usha Mirchandani and Ranjana Steinruecke, this charming gallery located behind the Taj Mahal hotel has been fostering a small portfolio of young and mid-career artists for the past few years. Among them are Abir Karmakar, who challenges notions of private and public with snapshot-like portraits of himself; Sosa Joseph, a painter whose canvases often depict coastal Kerala state; and Manish Nai, who works with jute and tracing paper. Steinruecke, who previously ran a contemporary Indian art gallery in Berlin, resists the tendency of some international curators to focus on socio-political issues when it comes to India. “It doesn’t always have to be about a issue; it could be about the handling of the medium, the reaction from the viewer,” she says.
