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.

Wherewithal

  • 28 September — 15 October 2016

Opening reception: 27 September 6-8pm

Opening times: Wednesday to Saturday 12 to 6pm

Wherewithal is a showcase exhibition that brings together four diverse, emerging artists who are all completing a year-long Acme studio award for recent graduates.

Alison Ballance's deft organisation of hand woven textiles, print works, watercolour drawings and texts, is a restrained yet emphatic way of talking about doubt.

Rutie Borthwick's practice focuses on how the human form in its entirety is a receptor – how the tactile can be a powerful trigger for the fundamental preverbal emotions and desires we have from birth.

Hugo Brazão continues to explore the imaginative possibilities of pareidolia – a psychological phenomenon for the mind’s eye to willfully perceive and interpret a familiar pattern of something where none exists, such as the man in the moon or animals in cloud formations.

Harriet Foyster’s practice is centred on an examination of the notion of labour, and how it is understood, measured and rewarded in the context of current capitalist economics, which pervades our everyday lives.

Acme’s Residency and Awards Programme was established up in the late 1990s to help alleviate the increasing pressure on fine art graduates to find ways to live, work and sustain a practice in the capital.
