St+Art Foundation Launches In Mumbai
12 November 2014
After the hugely successful impact of St.ART Delhi, the not-for-profit organization have just decended on the streets of Mumbai as part of a month long project.
St+Art aims to make art accessible to a wider audience by pulling it out of the gallery and putting it onto the streets - making art truly democratic for all. St+Art found success as an urban art festival in New Delhi, showcasing and documenting large, beautiful pieces of art on the streets of the capital garnering a huge response from the art community and, most vitally, beyond.
Hot on the heels of that success St+Art is now ready to help Mumbaikars express themselves through the medium of street art this November. With an unlimited supply of paint (curtsey of support from Asian Paints), St+Art will bring twenty artists from India and ten other countries to Mumbai to display their skills on iconic buildings, little bylanes and major streets.
Other highlights of the festival include murals, installations, performances, film screenings, stencil making, workshops, pop-up art exhibitions, walks, street talks and b-boy performances. Talk about a choc-a-bloc schedule.
The festival will take place from 7-30 November, 2014, at multiple locations in Bandra, Dharavi, Kala Ghoda and Versova and will be featured as part of the Street Art Project by Google. A must attend will be MAGMA Vol. I&II (Mumbai’s first exhibition exclusively for street art). Vol.I will take place at St.Jude Bakery, Bandra on 15 November, while Vol.II will occur at Upadrasta House, Kala Ghoda on 16 November.
