New modern art galleries are attracting Mumbai’s sophisticated set to the commercial Fort district. At the year-old Gallery BMB (Queens Mansion, G. T. Marg, Fort; 91-22/6171-5757; gallerybmb.com), which includes a cozy café and bookshop, the focus is on young, burgeoning Indian painters and sculptors, with pieces by P. S. Jalaja and Sonia Jose. In the street-stall-filled Colaba neighborhood, the cavernous Gallery Maskara (Warehouse on Third Pasta, 6/7 Third Pasta Lane, Colaba; 91-22/2202-3056; gallerymaskara.com) packs a former cotton warehouse with groundbreaking installations by local and international artists. Nearby, on the seafront, Volte (2/19 Kamal Mansion, Arthur Bunder Rd., Colaba; 91-22/2204-1220; volte.in) specializes in new media video and art installations.
