ABOUT PEER


PEER consistently surprises by creating opportunities for artists to produce exceptional work in unexpected circumstances.

 

Sir Nicholas Serota, Director, Tate

 

The Pier Trust was founded by Alex Sainsbury in 1997 and has been known as PEER since 1999. It is an independent organisation that commissions imaginative and ambitious arts projects by local, national and international artists in the heart of east London.

 

PEER’s Mission is to:

  • Deliver uncompromising, innovative, world-class art in the gallery and the public realm that is led by ideas and excellence rather than fashion and marketability.

  • Offer creative opportunities and experiences to local people of all ages and from a range of economic, social and cultural backgrounds through our participation programme.

  • Provide emerging, mid-career and established artists with opportunities to explore and to take new risks in their working practice.

  • Make a positive impact on the local environment and its communities through the provision of the highest quality art.
