It is normal to associate informal economies with slums, poverty, illegitimacy and misery of one kind or another. But the world's informal economies also enable, create and offer aesthetics that make them quintessentially human. This symposium will create an immersive artifactual experience of a typical marketplace in India that will offer intellectually and pedagogically stimulating examples of aesthetic marketplaces in informal economies -- aesthetic marketplaces being defined as those that (1) offer aesthetic products, (2) aesthetically impact the environments we live in or (3) inform, drive and manipulate our aesthetic preferences and aspirations.
