CNNgo: “Mumbai gallerists have shaken off the shackles of the 1980s and 1990s when galleries opened in garages and houses. They are taking risks and developing uniquely Mumbai spaces.

I say unique because Mumbai’s reworked spaces have retained their history while galvanizing the scene to show newer forms of art like installation and video.
