Art & Wonderment* aims to broaden, and deepen, art conversations in the city. Our walks foster new ways of seeing, sharing, and thinking about the art on view in Mumbai. With over 10 years of experience working together to build public audiences for art, we design and lead experiences for absolutely everyone.
At AWM, we know that art is for everybody. With just the right amount of context and clues, a little encouragement and lots of different opinions, our walks make space for a growing conversation on modern and contemporary art.
In addition to physical gallery visits, artists studio visits, behind the scenes tours, and more, for audiences in Mumbai, we also offer virtual art ‘walks’ and young-artist studio visits, so you can join us from anywhere!
We were Art Walks Mumbai, the same as before, just with more art for everyone!
Growing up, Alisha Sadikot often felt like the odd one out in her love for history and art. Today, as a museums and heritage learning professional she uses walks as a tool to instigate critical and creative public engagement with art, museum collections, urban histories and heritage spaces in Mumbai. Her practice focuses on broadening art, museum and heritage conversations through the Inheritage Project (since 2015) and Art Walks Mumbai. Formerly, Alisha was Curator, Education & Outreach, at the Dr. Bhau Daji Lad Mumbai City Museum where she helped develop the Museum’s popular learning programme.
Nishita Zachariah is an art educator, writer and creative busybody, whose pedagogy delves into the stories, ideology and processes behind works of art and their creators. The walks are her way of introducing new audiences to the pleasure of art viewing. By sharing insights and specialist knowledge she hopes to encourage a deeper understanding and appreciation of contemporary art. She has taught at the Vishwakarma University and Symbiosis School of Photography, Pune. She has worked with The Times of India, Panaji, and Dr. Bhau Daji Lad Museum, Mumbai. She lives and works out of Pune.
