Art Gallery Tour
This tour takes in, for the main part, the 3 biggest galleries in Kolkata which are mainly dedicated to contemporary exhibitions. They are The Centre for Contemporary Indian Art (CIMA), the Birla Academy of Art and Culture (but which also boasts a handsome little collection of Indian traditional Indian Art) and The Academy of Fine Arts.
Of course there are other smaller independent galleries which often have interesting exhibitions. It’s all a matter of what’s on at any given time. However if you wish to take in some of these galleries you will need to cover extra travel expenses as they can be substantial distances from each other.
We travel to these destinations by a combination of metro, taxi and auto rickshaw.
The tour starts at 3 pm and would normally last for about 3 hours. After completion we can have snacks and drinks at a spot where the city’s arts community meet to fraternize each evening.
