PEER is an independent arts organisation that has evolved from the ground over more than twenty years, putting down deep roots within the socially, culturally and economically diverse area of Hoxton in East London.
PEER’s core ethos is to embed its activities into the local community and to offer and promote the highest quality art as being part of daily life. PEER has presented an ambitious programme of projects working with nearly 150 artists, writers, curators and educators. Some past and recent projects with artists have included work with Martin Creed, Mike Nelson, Bob & Roberta Smith, Anthony McCall, Danh Vo, Fiona Banner, Emma Hart and Jonathan Baldock, Angela de la Cruz, Jadé Fadojutimi and Samson Kambalu.
PEER’s big aspirations and modest size play key roles in securing our place within the broader London art ecology. We offer both emerging and established artists the opportunity to test bold ideas in an intimate environment that stimulates experimentation and dialogue. Our human scale makes us less bureaucratic and opaque in comparison with many larger institutions. Artists cherish the opportunities that PEER has to offer, and the position that we occupy within the art world.
