Event Details

A major visual arts project that explores ideas of power, protest and the public.

We The People Are The Work is a major visual arts project in Plymouth that explores ideas of power, protest and the public curated by Simon Morrissey.

The project will build connections between the people of Plymouth and five internationally renowned artists through structures that involve people living in Plymouth in generating the ideas and artworks in the exhibition alongside the artists.

No single category or definition can successfully describe Peter Liversidge’s diverse practice, which includes work in almost every conceivable medium. The subjects of Liversidge’s work can be equally diverse, but they are all united by an underlying streak of dark, absurdist humour and a persistent questioning of the world around us.

Liversidge has made a series of works for Plymouth that bring together the ideas and voices of individuals from all walks of life in the city to be made into placards at The Council House. These signs will be spread around the city by the public.

The Council House is a key example of late-1950s British Modernism.

Exhibition runs 22/23/24 September and continues after the Weekender till 18/11/2017
