Things to Do in Kolkata

  • CIMA Gallery

    The Centre of International Modern Art (CIMA) is a celebrated art centre, which is situated in the artistically rich city of Kolkata. It was established in 1993, under the patronage of a leading media group named ABP Limited. The CIMA Gallery was designed in accordance with the guidelines of London and New York's art galleries and museums. In a brief period of just two decades, it has emerged as a famous name in the field of art.

    The aim behind the formation of this centre was to promote contemporary Indian art on a global platform. Modern and creative artworks by eminent Indian artists are displayed here, which attract art connoisseurs from several places. Till date, it has organised and assisted more than 100 art exhibitions, which have earned critical acclaim and popularity across the country and abroad. The art centre is extensively associated with several significant projects by international museums, cultural institutions and educational organisations. The gallery space of CIMA is about 8000 sq ft in area and serves as a perfect venue for seminars, workshops, exhibitions and expert interaction sessions.

    Since its establishment, the CIMA Gallery has organised two comprehensive and successful art shows – Chamatkara (1996) and Tryst with Destiny (1997). The former was performed in London, whereas the latter had Singapore as its venue. In addition to these famous shows, the gallery is known for its memorable exhibition named the Art of Bengal, which explored the development of art in the state over a period of 150 years.

    This art centre boasts of a lifestyle store called CIMA Designs, where visitors can find the finest of Indian designs. From fashion apparel and jewellery to home furnishing items and utility goods, this store offers a variety of products that are hard to ignore.

  • Swabhumi - The Heritage Plaza

    Exquisite and appealing, Swabhumi – The Heritage Plaza is not just another marketplace, but a comprehensive recreational centre. The array of merchandise here resonates the charm of Kolkata's heritage, which is a melange of rural life and folk art. This plaza is a perfect place for the entire family to unwind and spend a good time.

    The plaza complex has been meticulously designed and bears architectural features of 19th century Bengal. It is divided into three sections - Sambhar (the urban courtyard), Shilpagram (traditional zone) and Santushti (the food court). Sambhar is dedicated to shopaholics, where one can get items such as Madhubani and Gond paintings, Shahnaz Husain herbal products, handloom, handicrafts, wrought iron furniture, terracotta, ceramics and block printed dress material. In addition, it has an Ayurvedic store (Bhumisuta), export shop and a multi-utility store (Colours of India). Apart from these, there is an amphitheatre and a digital movie theatre, where visitors can enjoy concerts, film screenings and parties.

    The traditional zone or Shilpagram is segmented into four parts, namely Karigarer Haat, Meena Bazaar, Music Courtyard and Astrology. At Karigarer Haat or the village bazaar, craftsmen get an opportunity to showcase their artistic skills. For beautiful ethnic jewellery, handicrafts, lampshades, custom-made jewellery and glass showpieces, Meena Bazaar is the ideal venue. Other than shopping, visitors can relish mouth-watering traditional cuisine at Santushti, which is the food court featuring a number of restaurants. Banquet and conference facilities are also available at Swabhumi – The Heritage Plaza.
