Join artist Peter Liversidge as part of the UWE Fine Art / Art in the City series of lectures.
No single category or definition can successfully describe Peter Liversidge’s diverse practice which includes work in almost every conceivable medium: drawing, film, performance, painting, photography, installations and multiples. The subjects of his work can seem equally diverse but all begin at the artist’s kitchen table with Liversidge sitting alone writing proposals on an old manual typewriter for potential performances and artworks for different contexts. Some of these proposals are realized, many are not, but all are united by an underlying streak of dark, absurdist humour and a gently persistent questioning of things.
Liversidge will discuss the evolution of his idiocyncratic practice and recent projects in locations as diverse as Reykjavic, Belfast, Eindhoven and Frome.
Organised by Arnolfini, Bristol City Council, and the University of the West of England.
