#ForThePeople - Public Art and Mumbai by Arzan Khambatta

Art in Mumbai is synonymous with art galleries. But there’s a whole sphere of art within plain sight on our streets that goes largely unnoticed as we pass by with the proverbial blinkers on - murals, sculptures, graffiti, and other forms of public art. While the contemporary art scene in Mumbai has flourished in recent years, when it comes to public art outside the galleries with viewership open to one and all, we are still far behind other cities in the world. In our Online Talk #ForThePeople, artist and sculptor Arzan Khambatta takes us through the journey of public art in our city, talking about how the city has adapted to and accommodated public art, and what needs to change further. 

About the speaker:
Arzan Khambatta is an architect by training and a sculptor by choice. He started working with ‘scraptures’, sculptures made out of scrap metal, in 1983 and had his first public exhibition in 1993. After 11 solo shows and over 80 group shows, he has now started dabbling in film-making. He also designs and makes trophies, designs props and sets for experimental plays, and teaches sculpture and creativity to kids from all strata of society.
