The cultural capital of Gujarat, Vadodara (also known as Baroda) was the seat of the modern, pluralist rulers of the Gaekwad dynasty. Home to the reputed M.S.University, the city has trained some of the finest artists of modern India. Even today, it continues to draw students of art and other disciplines from all over India. As an emerging space for the practice of contemporary art and culture, Vadodara is steadily developing with its own aesthetic connotations.
