Overview for Museum Dialogue in India
This book is the first-ever compilation of essays by cultural practitioners about the changing and unchanging dynamics of India's museum landscape. The essays highlight Indian cultural institutions' ambitious beginnings, missed opportunities along the way, and the canvas for future imaginings.
At a time when museums in India are undergoing a sea change, this publication provides an invaluable insight into museum design, curatorial narratives, documentation and cataloguing and visitors' experience that will soon redefine museum perspectives in India. The book is a welcome resource for all museum planners, curators, conservators and researchers in the field.
