Priyanka Kundu

Lalbhai Dalpatbhai Museum

Museum Keeper

Country: India


Priyanka’s responsibilities as Museum Keeper include leading the outreach and educational activities programme which led her to realise the importance of making art accessible. Lalbhai Dalpatbhai Museum takes pride in its rich collection of Indian Art, representing cultures and ethnicities spread throughout the sub-continent. It is best known for some of its prominent collections on Jain Art, especially from the Gujarat region and has a vision to reach regional audiences and simultaneously step into the global realm.

Priyanka believes in a continuous learning process and endeavors to make art accessible and relatable to the community. Academically trained in Art History, her area of interest is ancient and medieval Indian Art, particularly exploring the links between the sculptures and architectural spaces.

At the British Museum

During Priyanka’s time on the International Training Programme she spent time in whole group sessions for a detailed overview of all aspects of the Museum’s work, both front of house and behind the scenes.  She also spent time in the Asia department. Priyanka spent her UK partner placement at Glasgow Museums.

Priyanka’s place on the International Training Programme was generously supported by the Charles Wallace India Trust and Inlaks Shivdasani Foundation.
