Peter Liversidge

British artist Peter Liversidge will be a recurring artist with performances, interventions and artworks at Konsthallen throughout 2018. Liversidge’s exhibiton presenting Proposals functions as a starting point generating new works. A number of proposals are addressed to the Konsthall, and represent an artistic method inspiring a dialogue. Certain proposals are impossible to realise, but not all. What is possible? Which proposals can Bonniers Konsthall undertake?

A few of the proposals will be actualised over the course of the year, and in December 2018 the artist returns to the exhibition space with new works and documentation of what occured.

Peter Liversidge was born in 1973 in Lincoln, England, and currently lives in London. He has been working on Proposals since 2006 along with European institutions, including Tate Gallery, London, Centre d’art Santa Mónica, Barcelona, Whitechapel Gallery, London, and Van Abbemuseum in the Netherlands. The exhibition at Bonniers Konsthall is the first time Liversidge exhibits in Sweden.
