The Mohile Parikh Center launches the Peer Reading Circles | Art History’s History, which aims to become a think-tank for enhancing the art curriculum in visual art colleges, and equip art students with informed conversations and discussions on art history, theory, aesthetics, and visual culture.
Envisaged as study circles within the academic context, the purpose of this new initiative is to generate collaborative forms of reading and learning, and develop methodologies of research and curriculum development by working along with teachers, students, and school leaders.
▪ Develop a peer to peer platform for informal artist talks, reading artworks and images, and theoretical discussions in art colleges | Formulate a portfolio of texts that will address the lacunae in the art curriculum | Integrate peer reading circles in curriculum exercises | Build sustained relationships where peer reading members are contributors and learners.
▪ Sir J.J. School of Art (Mumbai), Thane School of Art (Thane), and Department of Fine Art, SNDT University (Mumbai)
