Geographies of Consumption | Bombay/ Mumbai, is a public art project conceived and curated by the Mohile Parikh Center. Spanning over a year, it critically investigated the impact of consumption on natural resources in the city, and on human bodies, our ecosystems and cultures.

Field Notes is a culminating symposium that will explore ideas of the public sphere, our ecological footprint, and our right to the city. It will discuss the processes and challenges involved in making art in public spaces, and bring in forms of practice-led thinking. Each day of the symposium will conclude with film screenings that examine our consumptive geographies and its impact.

Admission free and open to all.
