Peer is an independent arts organisation that develops and presents projects in a range of media and in various locations, including our gallery space on Hoxton Street, London. We began our programme of activities in Autumn 1998 and since then have produced between three and five projects a year. Our activities have primarily been concerned with the visual arts, but we have also worked with musicians, filmmakers, writers and philosophers. We also produce publications by artists, about artists and about the cultural impact of contemporary art.
Writer and critic Louisa Buck recently said of Peer: "In an art world that is ever more commodified and market-driven, the multifarious projects commissioned by Peer, which are chosen for their quality alone, are especially precious – and memorable. Whether it is drawing attention to less familiar artists or giving established names the freedom to explore new possibilities, [Peer] continues to work across genre, generations and medium to the greater enrichment of us all."
