In a season that considers our challenges, moments of change and radical gestures of different types, we present a selection of works from the gallery collection that connect to ideas of change or new ways of perceiving the world.
The exhibition includes Proposals for Lancaster Arts by Peter Liversidge. Although his work exists in almost every conceivable medium, his artworks, interventions and performances all begin in the same way: as a proposal, typed on an Olivetti Lettera 35. In response to each new project, a group of proposals is written which consider the location, its history and the relationship with the surrounding community. Proposals for Lancaster Arts considers the home of the collection and Lancaster. We will work with the artist, The Ruskin and the Lancaster community to realise selected proposals during our season. This could involve planting an orchard, everyone learning the same melody or installing one hundred flagpoles.
