In its landmark eleventh edition, Manifestations, brings together seventy-five of India's premier and best-known modernist artists, covering a wide period and varied artistic styles of high modernism in India. The artworks are grouped by genre into the categories of landscapes, still-life, mythology, figurative, narrative, and abstract art, and will be exhibited in the hotel lobby in a specially designed and curated display. Delhi Art Gallery partners for the first time with JW Marriott Mumbai, bringing some of the best artworks from its over thirty-thousand artwork collection to collaboration with the hospitality leader.

The exhibition features prominent Indian modernists, led by former Progressives M. F. Husain, S. H Raza and F. N. Souza.

The select collection of artworks and sculptures by some of the leading modern Indian sculptors, will transform the JW Marriott Mumbai hotel lobby into a tasteful visual gallery space. Visitors can admire artworks by this eclectic and wide range of Indian masters, rarely seen under one roof, with the accompanying textual information guiding them on the highlights of the artwork.
