About this programme

Khirkee Shop-Makeovers:

As part of the larger KHOJ Community Arts Project initiative, 11 artists chose to explore uncharted territory (at least as far as some of their individual practices were concerned) and venture boldly forth into the realm of community art. The site was the Khirkee village; more specifically, the street KHOJ calls home. The project engaged with the shopkeepers who are the primary residents of the street, and entailed a group of two or three artists working in collaboration with a shopkeeper, establishing a rapport, exchanging ideas and developing a collective method of art-making. The site-specific projects would be viewed all along the street to KHOJ Studios.
