Aar Paar 2000, was a project in which artists from Karachi & Mumbai, made work which was swapped between the two cities and shown in public spaces : roadside eating places , paan shops etc. The idea of intervening in the city was to encourage an alternative audience, extend viewership of art, to not exclusively an "art" audience, but incidental viewing and sharing of work by artists, in places where spontaneous interaction between people occurs. In an attempt to extend this dialogue, Aar Paar 2002 took place similtaneouly in Mumbai and Karachi in
July 2002 in which ten artists from each city developed single colour work which were exchanged across the
two countries via email to be printed locally and inserted into public spaces : by plastering on city walls or distributing these as folded handouts. A short, targeted, intervention: less 'incidental' , less 'subtle' than before,
more obtrusive, in keeping with the absurdity and level of madness in our lives today.
