Envisioned to be a seminar-like program and for the artists who qualify for the final round of the Peers residency, the Peers share critic session serves as a great learning opportunity. The artists showcase their practice and get beneficial feedback from their peers, senior art practitioners, critics, and the Khoj curatorial team.
Peers Share 2022 dialogued with 10 applicants over a two-day forum with the intent to support and strengthen ideas/art practices.
On each day, each session consisted of participants as well as senior artists and curators who responded to their work. The participants of Peers Share this year had varied practices ranging from sculpture to lens based and animation, from hyper-realistic paintings to print and game making. It brought together a diverse set of young artists from varied backgrounds responding to the socio-political moment of today, using this forum to raise critical and urgent questions about their practice, their struggles and the responsibility of representing what they felt.
