BMB Opening: Art Scene’s Page One People

Inauguration of BMB Gallery proved to be a moment of reunion for Indian contemporary art scene’s movers and shakers. On 21st September 2009 evening, artists, art lovers, connoisseurs, art critics, curators, gallerists and so on congregated at the halls of the brand new BMB Gallery in Mumbai. Protected by heavy built bouncers, the works of art by internationally acclaimed artists including those of Chapman Brothers, Riyas Komu and Osodi spread out a visual feast for the visitors. The gallery space was almost inadequate to contain the thousand strong crowd and it spilled over to the adjoining streets. JohnyML and Somu Desai went (camera) trigger happy and captured these lively moments from the opening.
