It has no permanent collection.[1] At 1500 square feet (140 m2)[1][2] or 1500 m2, it is India's largest private art space.[3][dubious ] It was founded by Goan artist Subodh Kerkar.[1]

History[edit]

The three-storey gallery building was designed by Dean D'Cruz, and was completed in 2015 on the site of Kerkar's former studio.[1][2] A sculpture garden at the site is present.[4] Mog, the acronym for the museum, and a Konkani word, translates to "love".[5]

The gallery opened on 6 November 2015 with an exhibition entitled 'Gopalapatanam', of work by 20 Indian artists – including Kerkar – on the topic of Goan history.[2] Invitations to visit MOG were mailed to schools and colleges in the city.[4]

Dutch artist Karin van der Molen's work "Mind Bubbles" was shown at MOG.[6][7]
