As part of our 10 year celebrations, KHOJ curated the first ever International Performance Art Festival in New Delhi, commemorating its consistent engagement with the genre of live art practice. Live Art is an umbrella term encompassing a range of performance, performative and time based works. Beginning with its first international workshop in 1997 to more recent international residencies, Khoj has consistently encouraged experimentation with the genre.
Held from March 25th -30th 2008, KHOJLIVE08 was a dynamic six-day programme of events that brought together a diverse group of Indian and International performance artists in an attempt to showcase different currents, positions and possibilities within contemporary performance art. Prominent art galleries across the city hosted performances each evening over the course of the six days.
