hello, friends,

i'm trying to confirm the days of the week and the hours that the Centre of International Modern Art (CIMA) in kolkata is open. i found a second-hand reference stating that the hours were: monday, 3-7p.m.; tuesday-saturday: 11a.m.-7p.m.; closed sunday. are these times accurate? the CIMA website itself is maddenly silent on the issue and seems to have some dead internal links. if someone local to the museum is able to confirm the hours, i'd greatly appreciate it, as i'd like to squeeze in a visit if at all possible during my very brief stay at the end of february.

i'd also be interested in knowing of any smaller noteworthy modern art galleries showing local or national, rather than international, modern artists.

thanks!

thanks, sanjay. that's the URL i used with the dead links, no reference to upcoming exhibitions and an email address from which i received no reply. i was trying to avoid calling from the US, and can, of course, confirm the hours when i arrive. i was, however, hoping to do some advance planning because my time in kolkata is so limited.

thanks, jyotirmoy. another member fondly described you in another thread as a "bon vivant," among other nice things. i'll take your tips to heart.

jyotirmoy, i've had a chance to look into both of these - thanks so much! and as i am a film-lover, i hope i'll be able to fit in a visit to nandan. it'll be tight. for contemporary art, if my time is so narrowly circumscribed as to permit my just one or the other, would you suggest CIMA or the academy?

of the three days i'll be in kolkata, i will spend one visiting the child i sponsor in his village, leaving only 2 precious days in the city. on one of those days, a sunday, i'm hoping an IM meet-up comes to pass. on the other, a tuesday, i hope to observe proceedings in the high court in the morning... obviously, kolkata has many more worthy cultural institutions than i will have hours to explore them...
