Culture List | Shilpa Gupta
London: The city has key institutions such as the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Tate, the Tate Modern, and the Serpentine Gallery. Then, there are great galleries such as Hauser and Wirth and Gagosian on the one hand and the bustling East End galleries on the other. Of the latter, I always visit Gasworks, a superb artist residency/exhibition programme.
Berlin: One can still experience the residue of the histories of the East and the West among the places and the people here. There are a number of vibrant art spaces and art collectives, besides private galleries—for example, Kunst-Werk, Bethanien, Neue Gesellschaft für Bildende Kunst (NGBK), and the most important media art festival, Transmediale.
New York:It is important for all its blue-chip galleries and the famous Chelsea and Soho art districts, where there is a gallery at every turn and on every floor. There is the New Museum, the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) and the Queens Art Gallery.
Kassel:A small town in Germany that has put itself on the global art map by hosting Documenta, a cutting-edge contemporary art exhibition. It is one of the world’s most awaited art events. It takes place once every five years and we see the very best of international art there.
