Power Trendsetter: Kiran Nadar
The chairperson and founder of the Kiran Nadar Museum of Art (KNMA) recently collaborated with two veteran organisations — The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City and the Reina Sofia Museum in Madrid — to showcase the works of Indian modernist Nasreen Mohamedi on a global platform. A trustee of the Shiv Nadar Foundation and a passionate art collector, Kiran Nadar is also an internationally acclaimed bridge player and philanthropist.
Power is: “To me, it is the skill to tackle areas of work that you choose to be in, and do it to the best of your ability.”
On her recent international collaborations: “I think it is great for us, we are just six years old and to have a tie-up with three major international museums is a great achievement and it gave us the fulfilment of having achieved something.”
Future plans: “Currently we are the co-sponsors of the Bhupen Khakhar show at Tate Modern in London, and are hoping that the Himmat Shah exhibition also travels to a museum abroad.”
