PEER

PEER logo

PEER was established in 1999 as an independent arts organisation to commission imaginative and ambitious arts projects by international and local artists in the heart of east London. PEER’s distinctive programme combines gallery-based activities with projects in the public realm and educational and community activities and events. As an artist and outreach-focussed organisation, it encourages risk-taking and innovation, presenting art in its dedicated gallery space on Hoxton Street and at various locations in the vicinity, including vacant buildings, the street, the canal towpath and public parks in Hackney. We also produce publications by artists, about artists and about the cultural impact of contemporary art.

Angela de la Cruz

Angela de la Cruz – ‘Angela de la Cruz: Hoxton’

  • 16 April — 21 May 2016 *on now

PEER celebrates the arrival of spring with a beautifully renovated gallery and an inaugural exhibition by Angela de la Cruz, together with two new public art commissions on Hoxton Street, in the heart of East London. These projects will mark the end of a twophase renovation, which has seen major improvements to PEER’s space, elegantly unifying the two shopfronts of the original building into one architectural statement with a new, 10 metre doubleglazed façade onto the high street.

Angela de la Cruz’s presentation will feature her massive 10 x 12 metre painting Larger than Life, originally made for the Ballroom of the Royal Festival Hall in 1998. The PEER version was remade in 2004 and has toured widely abroad before being repatriated and squeezed into PEER’s more modest 5 x 7 metre gallery space. De la Cruz is widely acclaimed for her poignant and sometimes tragicomic works, situated somewhere between painting and sculpture. Her works test and challenge the objectness and authority of painting’s status by tearing, crushing and breaking canvases and stretchers. PEER will also exhibit new work specially commissioned for this presentation.
