Peter Liversidge: Proposals for Cardiff
Fri 28 May — Sun 11 July


Peter Liversidge always begins the exhibition process at his kitchen table, sitting alone writing proposals on an old manual typewriter. These handtyped pages present a wide range of possible and impossible ideas for performances, artworks and interventions in almost every conceivable medium. Over the past 10 years his proposals have included freezing over the River Mersey (Tate Liverpool Proposals); setting free a pack of wolves in Edinburgh (Festival Proposals) or the more achievable ‘I propose to smile’ (Ingleby Proposals).

For Chapter, Liversidge has produced a new body of proposals that form the basis for the works in the gallery and caffi bar. These can be seen in his new book ‘Proposals for Cardiff’.
Peter Liversidge is based in London and is represented by Ingleby Gallery, Edinburgh (www.inglebygallery.com). Recent projects and exhibitions include ‘The Thrill of it All’, Ingleby Gallery, 2010; ‘Proposals for Liverpool’, Tate Gallery, 2008 and ‘Jupiter Proposals’ (the newly opened sculpture park Jupiter Artland, 2009).

Forthcoming projects include fifty proposals to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art (which will be presented at the 2010 Edinburgh Art Festival) and a major new work to be unveiled at Jupiter Artland in May 2010. Liversidge is also one of 8 artists selected to be part of a major research project and exhibition by the Architectural Association, London and the city of Venice, to be unveiled at the Venice Biennale in 2011.

Gallery open: Tue — Sat 10-8pm; Sun 2-8pm. Closed Mondays.
