Kolkata - the cultural capital of India
As the cultural capital of India, Kolkata is defined by its blend of the traditional and the modern. Steeped in a culture that’s both Indian and international, it has been home to global stalwarts like Tagore, Ray, Ravi Shankar and Mother Teresa. In fact, Kolkata was the cradle of India’s modern age. And as for art, it was an atelier of the earliest modernist experiments in India. With a rich legacy such as this and a mindset eager to reach out to the world, Kolkata today is where India’s first-ever international house of modern art is quietly taking shape.
