Mumbai Urban Art Festival
The Mumbai Urban Art Festival (MUAF) is a three-month long multiarts festival that will take on a “city-scale endeavour which will include landmark murals, experiential exhibitions, immersive installations and public programming across key venues.”
Organised by St+art India Foundation together with Asian Paints, the festival will take place across several locations in Mumbai, including Sassoon Docks and the AP Arthouse. MUAF encourages the public to engage and experience the art and the stories it brings forth instead of merely observing it.
Showcasing the work of more than 60 national and international artists to a wide range of audiences in unexpected spots, the festival aims to “create a dialogue on pressing issues with regard to future cities”. Some of the artists to be participating in the festival include Aashti Miller from Mumbai, Ad Minoliti from Argentina, Filthy Luker from the UK, Graphic Surgery from the Netherlands and H11235 from Nepal. Entry to the Mumbai Urban Art Festival is free but you to need to register online, but the guided walks and workshops are priced at a nominal fee.

In the spirit of celebration, reimagination, and development, Sassoon Dock will become an art hub open to all, in the heart of South Mumbai. Permanent outdoor murals will enrich this hyper characteristic site while leading to the 3 indoor experiential exhibitions. Large scale site-specific installations, new media, and light based works will immerse the viewer in reflections between the sea and the city. Over the weekends, a host of workshops, talks, art walks, performances, concerts, dance events, kids activities and more will activate Sassoon Docks.
