About the Event

St+art India Foundation presents the Mumbai Urban Art Festival

St+art India Foundation in collaboration with Asian Paints is pleased to announce the Mumbai Urban Art Festival, bringing back the Sassoon Dock Art Project and several other experiences across the city after a 5 year hiatus! MUAF will contribute to the contemporary public art heritage, featuring new interventions that will be held across Mumbai. All of these activations aim to create a dialogue on pressing issues with regard to future cities.  

The first edition of MUAF will explore the idea of ‘city in flux’, as a constant movement inherent to the city of Mumbai. As one of the key projects of the festival, Sassoon Dock will become an art hub open to all, featuring permanent outdoor murals and 3 indoor experiential exhibitions. Furthermore, every weekend from the 22.12.22. to the 22.02.23 a plethora of performances, workshops, talks, walks, kids programming and more, will animate the dock and the city!

Sassoon Dock Art Project Part 1 - Intuitions. Between the sea and the city

22.12.22 - 22.02.23

Spanning diverse geographies, the exhibition aims to pose questions about our complex relationship with the environment, more specifically with water and the expanding hypercity.

Sassoon Dock Art Project Part 2- Illusions. Between the sea and the city 

12.01.22 - 22.02.23

In a path from darkness to light, this venue will reflect on some of the complexities of our societal institution by proposing alternative, fluid, and expansive views on our transactional reality. 

The AP Art House 

13.1.23 - 5.02.23

The Art House will consider what a ‘home’ can be, if inspired by creative living and modular design.

This edition will offer a variety of mediums ranging from murals to installations, sculptures to visual art, poetry to performance; all of which will spotlight global urbanisation and its impact on cities, while integrating art and play within our urban spaces.

St+art India Foundation x Asian Paints

St+art India Foundation contributes to urban regeneration and community living through contemporary urban art projects. The foundation enables a vision for democratised public spaces through interdisciplinary art interventions that are rooted in the social context. Their aim is to engage with the public imagination by connecting communities and providing a platform for artists and cultural exchanges. During the past decade, St+art India has made its mark over 25 cities across India through festivals and site-specific projects which include murals, community-engaged projects and experiential exhibitions — realised in collaboration with 400+ international and local artists. All of this would have been impossible without the patronage, guidance, and encouragement of Asian Paints, their vision partner since 2014. 

One of the largest paint companies globally, Asian Paints’ involvement with St+art India extends far beyond material resources. Over the years this has included insights, varied resources, and unparalleled efforts in facilitating innovation in the public space. 

Asian Paints has been an active and dynamic patron across multiple festivals and public art projects organised by St+art India in Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Chandigarh and Coimbatore creating iconic landmarks in these cities. Each public art district in the country and new editions of several festivals bring curated interventions to civic spaces that are embedded in urban culture, and use art as a tool to reimagine how public spaces can be utilised.

One of the key venues of the Mumbai Arts Festival will be the Asian Paints Art House. Over the course of the month, this venue will showcase a mix of art, installation and design, as a means to reflect every hue of colour thereby creating a sensory experience that unleashes the power and impact of colour. These experiences aim to awaken natural curiosity and encourage uninhibited play, not just for children but adults alike.

As partners with a shared philosophy of #ArtForAll, St+art and Asian Paints continue to collectively share a long-term vision for India to nurture public art as a means of a democratic urban and social regeneration.
