If you thought museums were just heritage buildings to explore historical objects and artworks, think again. Acclaimed artist Dayanita Singh, known for her path-breaking work in photography, expands the boundaries of the ‘museum’ with her latest exhibition. Featuring 44 objects from the Museum of Chance, the show Suitcase Museum is made up of two valises and aims to foretell the future of museums. There are always new ways of looking at objects, institutions and structures, as viewers discover through this show.
