Cringing, craving, bingeing, braving... you always have an opinion on what's hot and what's not in your city and we just love to hear it. Besides, there's no better place to satiate that itch to bitch!
Jehangir art gallery is not, and should not be considered as a benchmark for the art scene in Mumbai. That is because the gallery space is easily rented out to artists, and most of the times these artists are not very good. Having said that, some art shows hosted here have been exceptional. But going by the recent past, I would not recommend jehangir art gallery to travellers and budding art students. Art connoisseurs are well aware of the fact that the best ART as such, is found at some less popular galleries in Colaba....

Truly commendable in the age where time has become a luxury, the Jehangir Art Gallery draws one into the world of art and reminds us why reflection on perspectives on life is necessary for the well-being of the soul.

I have visited Jehangir frequently for the last 4 years, and really must stop myself from going in next time I get tempted.
I say this as I have never been impressed with any of the exhibitions I have seen there. Either I am left struggling to recognize any talent and originality, or am desperately seeking some semblance of theme and form.
This is therefore the perfect gallery for the "hotel bedroom/chocolate box" art connoisseur, or those suffering from a bout of the Emperor's New Clothes syndrome (Dolly Thakore and the rest of the Page 3 crowd take note).
