P2P Project Feedback Session
Hosted by Curator and Scholar Noor Bhangu
14.01.2020 7pm - 9pm
January 14th 2020, SomoS hosts a new edition of our regular Peer to Peer Feedback Sessions, this time moderated by curator and scholar Noor Bhangu.
This session is open to artists, curators and creatives of any background who would like to receive feedback on their work.
At each session, artists and curators comment on each other’s work in an outspoken and constructive manner, with the presence of a moderator. The purpose of the session is to create a casual but focused atmosphere, in which creators get the opportunity to share their own work-in-progress and challenges, and at the same time to critique their peers.
The session is free of charge. Capacity is limited to 8-10 people per session so registration in advance is required.
Please confirm your participation by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will send you a confirmation.
Please bring along documentation of your work in any shape or format. There will be a video projector available. Physical work is also welcome.
About Noor Bhangu
Noor Bhangu is a curator and scholar of South Asian descent based in Toronto, whose work employs cross-cultural encounters to interrogate issues of diaspora in post- and settler-colonial contexts. Her work largely engages issues around diasporic belonging, archival rummaging, and cultural translations.
In the past, her exhibitions have highlighted diaspora-centric art production through critical detours into archival/counter-archival practices in diverse social contexts, including South Asia and Canada. Through this approach, the archive has figured as a metaphor and a verb to remove what she has considered to be systematically destructive ways of creating history. In future projects, she moves towards the plane of the digital and virtual to consider the ways in which identity is shaped and translated online to dismantle hidden transcripts of neutrality and erasure. Through this she would like to shift her focus from art as a method of moving through the past to one in which art is a way to move out into the world.
