Foundation Stone laid for Kolkata Museum of Modern Art
KOLKATA, INDIA, 15 November 2013 - The foundation stone of the Kolkata Museum of Modern Art was laid today by the Chief Minister of West Bengal, Mamata Banerjee. Situated in Rajarhat, a new commercial, industrial and residential district on the north-eastern fringes of Kolkata, KMOMA’s ambition is to expand the multiple functions that support a traditional contemporary museum. It aims to provide a platform for artists, scholars, students and visitors to have an experience of the critical role art and museums can play in a community. KMOMA commissioned Herzog & de Meuron in 2008 and this is their first project in India to date.
