"Of City Spaces and Graveyards: A Pictorial Reading" (PAMLA 2020) 
Graveyards have been integral to the structuring and ethos of city spaces. With beautiful landscapes and monuments, burial spaces have come to serve not only those in mourning, but also those who seek relaxation and an escape from the drudgery of city life. This workshop, through paintings, photographs, and contemporary images of burial sites, aims at tracing the significance of such spaces within the city. It is also an attempt at understanding how pictorial representations of such landscapes can be reflective of the socio-cultural dynamics of a given place and time.
