Collecting the Artist is an exhibition that traces the untold story of the Madhavan Nayar collection and pays tribute to his vision. In 1991, entrepreneur Madhavan Nayar (1914 - 1994) embarked upon an extraordinary project: to gift an art gallery to the city of Kochi. Over three years he acquired nearly 230 works by some of the leading artists of the century. Nayar's Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art opened to the public in 1993. Through a display of major works from this collection, the exhibition Collecting the Artist highlights the story of the art movements that inspired their creators.
