exoticindiaart - Authentic Curated Heritage

The Art Society of India (ASI) was formed on 7th April 1918. It’s aim has been to bring the visual artists community in India together. It has provided the artists with an Indian platform to promote their Art.

In 1946, novelist and activist Mulk Raj Anand, along with a group of 14 artists, art historians and architects, founded MARG (Modern Architectural Research Group) in an India on the threshold of Independence. Over the last 75 years, the magazine and books have been a forum for pioneering research in Indian art.
