Art at (not just) a mall  

21 Jan 2023 | BKC

On Saturday morning, 21 Jan, we're taking you to a place you might be familiar with, the Jio World Drive and Maker Maxity, to look closer (and maybe even see for the first time) and the stunning works of public art placed all around. If you're stunned, come along, we'll show you works that have been hiding in plain sight: light works that hum, buses that fly, reels that spin, and little nuggets of the site's filmy history, scattered throughout the spaces!

Studio Visit- Vishwa 3 Dec.png

Studio Visit: Vishwa Shroff  

3 Dec 2022 | Colaba

If you've been on our art walks, you've heard us talk about Vishwa Shroff's work as we go down staircases, through old bazaars and point up at passing buildings! She's what they call an "urban forager", looking for fragments and scenes from cities she lived in to create works that are at once familiar and poignant. Her minutely observed drawings of flooring patterns in a single building or how people inhabit their living spaces remain our favourite works. Join us on this special tour, which begins with a visit to Vishwa's ongoing solo at TARQ and then heads to her studio space for a deeper look at her practice.

Art Gallery Hop  

12 Nov 2022 | Ballard Estate

It's time to book your once-a-month fun, friendly, art gallery hop and - oh my goodness - do we have a treat for you! 
Our walk begins Galerie Mirchandani + Steinruecke with stunning, evocative works by Aban Raza in her solo exhibition, There is Something Tremendous about the Blue Sky. We last saw Raza's work in a virtual exhibition during the lockdown and even just through a screen, she quickly became one of our favourite new artists! We're also so chuffed about this new mini art district that's found its home in Ballard Estate - from Mirchandani & Steinrucke we skip around the corner to Galerie Isa to see large, abstract works by German artist Gregor Hildebrandt, whose art practice is drenched equally in a passion for music. 

Finally, we weave through a labyrinth of old city streets to end Chemould Prescott Road , giving the rest of our time to one of our all time art superheroes, the artist Pushpamala N. That's enough detail for now, we think!:) 

AWM Platform Shyamli Singbal.png

AWM Platform | Ed. 2 | Shyamli Singbal  

13 Oct 2022 | Zoom

We’re excited to announce that our second edition of Platform will showcase the work of Shyamli Singbal, an artist working with drawing and digital media, based in Panjim and Vadodara. We’ve reworked our format to focus on one artist per edition, allowing you, the viewer, to engage more intently with their practice.  

 

Shyamli grew up in Panjim, Goa, before completing a Bachelor’s in Fine Arts in Painting (2017) from the Faculty of Fine Arts, Maharaja Sayajirao University, Vadodara, and a post-graduation in Fine Arts (2020) from Goldsmiths University of London. 

Shyamli’s practice involves a close investigation of the worlds around her. Family and friends appear in ink and colour pencil as intimately observed portraits of the everyday. A fascination with form and found objects reveals itself in her sculptural and digital works. Most recently Shyamli is also developing a collaborative art making practice that includes zines, colouring books and exhibition making.

Studio Visit: Lakshmi Madhavan 

20 August 2023 | Bandra

Join artist Lakshmi Madhavan in-studio for a deep dive into her practice, and participate in a workshop that examines the intimate relationship between body and textile - dwelling between identity and belonging, memory and materiality. Lakshmi works with kasavu, the traditional textile of Kerala, which emerged as an umbilical cord for her, prompting her to not only examine her linkage to her roots but also investigate the socio-cultural history and politics woven into this fabric. In this collaborative workshop, she invites participants into an understanding of textiles as being embedded with histories and traditions - personal and collective - and structures of power, revealing who we were and who we are.

Spaces for Art

11 June 2023 | Kala Ghoda

Join AWM on our first, in-person, edit of Spaces for Art, a walking tour that revisits & reveals the space(s) behind the modern & contemporary art movements in Mumbai. We start in Rampart Row in the mid-20th century with the beginnings of modern art making and display in a newly independent, post-colonial city.

We “visit” spaces that have disappeared, fallen out of use or bravely continue to stay current: an artists’ centre, restaurants that became creative addas and new galleries for a young country. Our walk then ends inside the CSMVS, the 21st century city's premier museum showcasing historical artefacts, prints and paintings - sometimes, crucially, in conversation with contemporary artworks!

Behind the Scenes: TIFR Art Collection  

26 Nov 2022 | Navy Nagar

This is THE behind the scenes you've been waiting for! Join us on a private walk through one the city's greatest cultural treasures: the art collection of the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR). You may know it as a renowned centre for fundamental research and learning but we love it for the art that lines its corridors and dots its offices! The brainchild of Dr Homi Bhabha, the Institute's founder, this unparalleled collection richly represents the rising stars of the post-Independence era, including rare, unseen works by the Bombay Progressive Artists and others like Nasreen Mohamedi and Nalini Malini. Bhabha, and his successor M G K Menon, saw the art collection as an opportunity to support and showcase the very best of contemporary art in a newly independent India. Join us, and the chief archivist of the TIFR, to explore one of the best, and best kept secret, art collections in the city!

Walkthrough of 'Song to Self'  

21 Oct 2022 | Method Colaba

Come, join us this Friday evening for a special walkthrough of Song to Self, a new series of works by WOLF inspired by the words of 14th century Kashmiri mystic, Lal Ded. In their inimitable style, WOLF, an artistic collective in Jaipur, creates visually stunning and thought provoking pieces from scrap, waste and found discards, this time drawn specially from Kashmir. Srila Chatterjee of Baro Market  will lead this intimate walkthrough, sharing WOLF's vision and thoughts behind each of the works, that "honours ancient feminine wisdom. It leads us inwards by tuning in to the body and breath." 

Studio Visit Teja + Pratap.png

Studio Visit: Teja Gavankar & Pratap Morey  

25 Sept 2022 | Borivali (E)

We know the hike out to Borivali can feel like a safari, with the Sanjay Gandhi National Park right there! So we thought we’d make a fun, day-long trip of it, to visit and interact with remarkable artists Teja Gavankar and Pratap Morey in their studios. Two artists who look at the city and its built environment through completely different perspectives and engage with diverse materials. We’ve long admired Teja’s brick manipulations, her ability to transform everyday materials into seemingly organic, sculptural visions. On the other hand, Pratap’s fascination with the changing landscape of Mumbai led to arresting architectural drawings and collages of the contemporary world we inhabit but don’t really see.

Decoding Art wt Art Insider - Akara.png

Decoding Indian Art  

17 Sept 2022 | Colaba

Ever stood in front of a work of art and wondered “What am I looking at/for?” We get asked this all too often. From that simple question came this exciting collaboration between Art & Wonderment and The Art Insider! Decoding Art is a series that presents Indian art history in a conversational, narrative format. By drawing connections between works on display in the gallery, we will unpack the thoughts and ideas behind seminal modern and contemporary Indian works of art and movements. 

 

Taking a leap out of textbooks and traditional chronology, we want the conversation to swirl around the works in the room, building narratives, sharing histories and interpreting the art in ways that encourage personal exploration and discovery. This first session we look at the ongoing exhibition at Akara Art, weaving a story around the Indian Moderns and and how to read them!

Studio Visit: Savia Mahajan

At her suburban studio, Savia will walk us through some of her recent works and drawings, as well as a peek into a new experimental piece!

Bring your hat, shades & sunscreen on a Sun-day trip to the beachside home and studio of dynamic artist couple Nibha Sikander and Sukhdev Rathod. Away from the chaotic city, they’ve built (literally) a home and independent, diverse practices that draw from the surrounding lush, natural landscape. 

We expect to get there by 11 AM followed by a light breakfast and a tour of the property and Sukhdev’s projects. We then break for a homely lunch served al-fresco before peeking into Nibha’s latest work.
