Chatterjee & Lal was formed in 2003 by husband and wife team Mortimer Chatterjee and Tara Lal. In the early years the gallery, though housed in a 200 sq ft. space, was the site of exciting projects such as a two-part retrospective of Nasreen Mohamedi’s work and exhibitions by Sudarshan Shetty and Rashid Rana. The present exhibition space, which is 1600 sq ft. and located in a Victorian era warehouse, was opened with the exhibition of Berlin and Lahore based artist Sophie Ernst in August 2007.
Over the years the gallery and its artists have formed an important node in the city’s maturing art scene. In addition to the exhibiting of work within the confines of the gallery, Chatterjee & Lal has also organised a number of projects that have utilised non-traditional spaces within the city by artists that use mediums as diverse as performance, video and sculptural installations.
The constant over the years has been a commitment to promoting art practices that are challenging, engaging and, above all, provide ample evidence of the strength and depth of the visual arts both in the subcontinent as well as of the art informed by an interest in the region.
