About Museum of Art & Photography (MAP)
Set to open to the public in 2022, the Museum of Art & Photography or MAP’s mission is “to take art and culture to the heart of the community, making it accessible to diverse audiences, and to create a museum-going culture that encourages people to experience art and heritage in new ways”. Housed in a five-storey building on Kasturba Road in Bengaluru, MAP will include galleries, an auditorium, an art and research library, an education centre, a specialised research and conservation facility, as well as a terrace cafe.
MAP’s activities have already expanded beyond the four walls of a traditional museum space with the launch in December 2020 of its Digital Museum, one of the first in India. It curates experiences for audiences of all ages, from online exhibitions to a range of articles and essays, collaborations with museums around the world, talks by leading industry figures and educational resources.
