Update on the 13th Compound Exhibition that transformed the streets and industrial spaces of Dharavi into an art show, showcasing the works of Artefacting Mumbai to the local community and attracting an estimated 500 outsiders into Dharavi.

A street exhibition of works in progress was presented at Mumbai’s famed Kala Ghoda gallery on Dec 20th, 2010.
