Founded by Kekoo and Khorshed Gandhy in Bombay in 1963, Gallery Chemould is one of India's oldest commercial art spaces, and has nurtured and represented many of the country's leading artists since then. Under the directorship of Shireen Gandhy since 1988, the gallery has expanded its roster of artists to represent those working in experimental and alternative mediums, and its exhibition program spans younger, mid-career, and senior artists. The gallery relocated in February 2007, as Chemould Prescott Road, to a modern, loftlike space equipped for large-scale exhibitions; that have included experimental, cutting-edge installations by Atul Dodiya, Anant Joshi, Vivan Sundaram, L.N. Tallur, Wolfgang Laib, and Gigi Scaria; exhibitions of new media work by Rashid Rana, Jitish Kallat, Tushar Joag, Shezad Dawood and Shilpa Gupta.
Chemould has collaborated with public institutions and galleries in Europe, Australia, and South Africa to present Indian art at major international venues. It has frequently lent artworks from its private collections for internation ally curated shows, including the complete set of Atul Dodiya's Antler Anthology (2003/04) to Documenta 12, held in Kassel in 2007. In November 2009 Chemould collaborated in commissioning a work by Hema Upadhyay for a large exhibition, Chalo! India: A New Era of Indian Art, at the Mori Museum, Tokyo. In September 2013 the gallery completes fifty years of its existence.
