    An art gallery based in Mumbai specialising in modern and contemporary art, Cymroza Art Gallery was was founded by Pheroza J Godrej in 1971, at a time when the Jehangir Art Gallery was the only other public art gallery in the city. Cymroza sought to provide a public cultural space that could address the lack of institutional support for the arts and was crucial in shaping the evolving arts scene of the 1960s and 1970s, working with artists such as B Prabha, Piloo Pochkhanawala, Naren Panchal, KH Ara and Adi Davierwalla.

    The gallery regularly hosts exhibitions and presents lectures, workshops and discussions. Its collection includes works by Jyoti Bhatt, Arpana Caur, Anupam Sud, Atul Bhalla, Raja Ravi Varma and Manjit Bawa, among others.
