Chatterjee & Lal announces the opening of their new gallery to promote contemporary and emerging art from India and around the world. Located in downtown Colaba, the space has been conceived to show cutting edge work in a range of media, including video, installation and other 3-D art forms. The gallery is state of the art and is packed with the latest lighting and hanging technologies. Moving away from the more traditional white cube space the Chatterjee & Lal gallery has incorporated the original architecture into its design process which includes 150 year old brickwork and iron pillars.
Chatterjee & Lal comprises husband and wife team Mortimer Chatterjee & Tara Lal. Having met whilst working for auction houses, they have been promoting a younger generation of artists since 2003 and in that time have hosted many exhibitions throughout the city as well as organising the visual arts section of the Kala Ghoda festival in 2005 and 2006. They have come to be known as leaders in recognising and promoting new and undiscovered talent.
