India’s Gateway is a temporary exhibition with family friendly activities that traces the history of Gujarat and Mumbai as age-old centres of trade and migration, focusing on their remarkable links with Britain. Featuring photographs by Tim Smith and an installation by Indian film-makers Amit Madheshiya and Shirley Abraham, the exhibition weaves history together with words and images to explore the lives and experiences of Gujarati communities today.
