The definition of museums across the world is changing as art is moving from white cube spaces to unconventional locations. Riding on this wave of change is the Piramal Museum of Art with galleries spread across various corporate complexes in Mumbai. One of the galleries of the museum is located at Piramal Ananta in Agastya Corporate Park, Kurla. Apart from works by F.N.Souza, M F.Husain, Subodh Gupta and Krishen Khanna, 10 paintings by artist duo Thukral & Tagra representing Dasavatar adorn the stairway in this building. Another gallery of the Museum is located in Byculla at Piramal Aranya. The art works here are a combination of paintings from the Piramal Collection by artists such as V.N.Aji, Binode Behari Mukherjee, Shiavax Chavda, M.F.Husain and Chugtai as well as works specially commissioned and produced for the gallery. Of particular significance are the 26 paintings produced by Thukral and Tagra that depict native and non-native flora from the nearby Byculla zoo.
