Nritya Black Country, curated by Jaivant Patel Dance, an award-winning arts organisation rooted in Wolverhampton, explores the history of the development of Indian dance in the region between 1960 and 2000.
The exhibition is being hosted at Wolverhampton's Lichfield Street gallery until December 20, and shares stories, photographs, films and objects collected from some of the pioneer dancers, teachers, choreographers and members of the local community.
The items gathered allow visitors to discover the interwoven threads, connecting place, people and cultural heritage - and look to the future with contemporary artists reinventing Indian dance.
Laura Page, marketing officer for arts and culture, said: "The exhibition opened on September 19 and runs until December 20.
"Within Wolverhampton we do have a high number of the Asian community and it's a story that previously hasn't been told so it's giving a new insight into the development of this type of dance.
"We do have social distancing measures in place, and people don't have to book but they are asked Track and Trace questions and face coverings are asked to be worn where possible."
