Method Bandra presents The Monsoon Room by Red Earth. The Monsoon Room creates a moody haze around the city’s monsoon with photography, graphic, text/poetry, and monsoon-inspired merchandise. From documentative to meditative-expressive bodies of work, three young artists essay their own whimsical interpretations of the Monsoon in Mumbai in their highly individualistic styles.

The city has a rich monsoon culture unparalleled elsewhere in the country, and Red Earth brings The Monsoon Festival to Mumbai, which takes significant cultural importance, in being a landmark event that uncovers aspects of Mumbai’s love-hate Monsoon experience; for the first time in this expansive way.

The festival research and documentation centers around varied sub-themes that are intrinsic to the Mumbai monsoon experience: from landscapes and cityscapes; to the human experience and emotions attendant herein; objects and material culture; the matrix of cultural elements and tropes; and the dark side of the Monsoon.
