The exposition will be opened in the New Tretyakov Gallery on Krymsky Val, and cultural events will be held at various venues in Moscow.
The curator of the exhibition from the Indian side will be the director of the Art Museum of Arts Kiran Nadar in Delhi Robin Karode, from the Russian side Faina Balakhovskaya and Sergey Fofanov from the Tretyakov Gallery.
The exhibition will run until September 6th.
