Ms. Birgid Uccia, renowned art historian has curated the art exhibition 'WASTE LAND' as part of the biennial public diplomacy campaign “70 Years of Swiss-Indian Friendship: Connecting Minds – Inspiring the Future”. Aiming to reinforce this friendship, the exhibition connects creative minds from contemporary Indian art and Swiss expertise. Cutting across these disciplines, the exhibition provides a platform for the exchange of innovative ideas, increasing awareness and effecting social change. The artists in the exhibition not only explore the temporal dimension of waste, but also discover the expressive potential of refuse and transform it into objects that often do not reveal their origin in the dumpsite or the everyday context of usage.
As a special contribution, the Consulate General of Switzerland in Mumbai will organize a panel discussion with experts associated with the Swiss Agency for Development & Cooperation on the subject of waste management and recycling on Friday, 13th July 2018.
Entry Free. 11.00 a.m. to 06.30 pm from Tuesday to Saturday
