Nita Ambani becomes first Indian trustee of ‘The Metropolitan Museum of Art’

Date:

New York: Nita Ambani has been named the Honorary Trustee of The Metropolitan Museum of Art on Tuesday by the Museum’s Chairman, Daniel Brodsky.

Ambani’s election took place at the November 12 meeting of the Board. She is the first Indian to be so honoured.

“Mrs. Ambani’s commitment to The Met and to preserving and promoting India’s art and culture is truly exceptional.  Her support has an enormous impact on the Museum’s ability to study and display art from every corner of the world. It is a pleasure to welcome Nita Ambani to the Board,” Brodsky said.

“It has been deeply rewarding for me over the past several years to support The Metropolitan Museum of Art in its desire to expand and enhance its program of exhibiting the arts of India. I have been moved and impressed by The Met’s keen interest, which enables our commitment to see Indian art and culture represented on the global platform. This great distinction inspires me to redouble my efforts on behalf of India’s heritage, from the ancient to the contemporary,” Nita Ambani said.

Nita Ambani is the Founder and Chairperson of the Reliance Foundation, an Indian philanthropic organization that has supported The Met since 2016, beginning with the exhibition Nasreen Mohamedi. That presentation was the first museum retrospective of the artist’s work in the United States and was also one of The Met Breuer’s inaugural exhibitions.

In 2017, the Museum honoured Ambani at The Met Winter Party, an event celebrating the achievements of those who foster greater diversity and inclusion in the world of art. Generous with her time and expertise, Ambani is also a member of The Met’s International Council.
