For the past two years art collector Frank Cohen has been meeting with, researching, and buying the work of the best Indian artists — and now he’s showing the works at his 10,000 sq.ft. Wolverhampton gallery. “Passage To India” opens at Initial Access on 15th March 08. On show will be work by…

“Krishnaraj Chonat, Atul Dodiya, Subodh Gupta, Bharti Kher, Tallur L.N., Jagannath Panda, Rashid Rana, Ravinder Reddy and Sudarshan Shetty.”

International visits to Birmingham were 779,000 in 2006, with overnight visitors generating £1.4 billion in turnover — I’d like to think that Initial Access manages to get on the tourism literature in time for this summer, since high-quality attractions like this would draw them out and encourage them beyond the city centre.
