The works by the Progressive Artists’ Group laid the foundation of modern art in post-independence India and today are the most important segment in the Indian art market. This panel, moderated by Asia Society Museum Director Boon Hui Tan brings together major collectors of works by the Progressives from India, London, and New York for a conversation about the art, their reasons for collecting, and the future of India’s art scene. 

The program will be followed by a reception.


Part of the Season of India, a series of programs held in conjunction with the exhibition, The Progressive Revolution: Modern Art for a New India, on view at Asia Society Museum from September 14, 2018 to January 20, 2019.
