LONDON.- Tate and the Ministry of Culture, Government of India have signed a Memorandum of Understanding, expressing a mutual desire to develop collaborations focused on modern and contemporary art. The agreement was signed by Sh. Pramod Jain, Joint Secretary, Ministry of Culture, Govt. of India and Judith Nesbitt, Head of International Partnerships, Tate on Thursday 6 February 2014.

The Ministry of Culture and Tate agree to cooperate on institution to institution collaboration in areas of common interest including exhibitions, scholarly research, fellowships, collection care, learning programmes and loans. Across all areas, there will be a commitment to collaborative exchange between museum colleagues in both India and the UK.

With the aim of developing mutual understanding of British and Indian art, this MoU provides a framework for future projects, building on previous collaborations. In 2007, the National Gallery of Modern Art, Delhi and the Ministry of Culture, Govt. of India, organised in collaboration with the Haus der Kunst, Munich, worked with Tate on the Amrita Sher-Gil exhibition at Tate Modern in 2007. Tate Modern is working in partnership with Khoj International Artists’ Association on Word. Sound. Power, an exhibition currently on display at Khoj in New Delhi. In the field of collection care, The Indian National Trust for Art and Cultural Heritage (INTACH) and Tate have supported the exchange of conservation expertise in Delhi, Bangalore and London.

In Summer 2014, Tate Liverpool will present a monographic exhibition of the work of Nasreen Mohamedi (1937-1990). Born in Karachi and raised in Mumbai, Mohamedi is a significant artist within the modernist tradition. The exhibition will bring toLiverpoolart works from public and private collections in India and beyond.

Tate Director, Sir Nicholas Serota said: “Tate is delighted to have this important opportunity to work with the Ministry of Culture to develop our relationship with colleagues and cultural institutions in India. This timely agreement will support the reciprocal exchange of ideas and knowledge in the field of modern and contemporary art in India and the UK, allowing deeper engagement with art for audiences in both nations.’
