This is your last chance to catch Jadé Fadojutimi's show in her first exhibition at a public institution.

"The work is exhilarating for its formal sophistication and assurance of painterly technique, but the first impression one has is of the sheer sensation of energy that it generates." Caroline Douglas, Contemporary Art Society

Jadé also took over PEER's Instagram account, follow us to get behind the scenes access to her studio and practice.

PEER Notices
Rebecca Moss Selected for Commission
Rebecca Moss – Thick-skinned, 2018, video still

We are pleased to announce that Rebecca Moss will be the first artist commissioned for our new PEER Notices and PEER Ambassadors programme, supported by Paul Hamlyn Foundation.
Rebecca Moss is an artist based in Essex and East London. Her practice critically examines heroic narratives in relation to landscape, taking the form of site responsive absurdist videos, performances and interventions. She has previously led Digifest Workshops at Focal Point Gallery, Southend.
PEER Notices is a unique chance for Rebecca to work on a public art project on Hoxton Street with the PEER Ambassadors across one year.

Bill Culbert (1935-2019)
We were deeply saddened to learn of Bill Culbert's death on 28 March. He will be remembered for his generosity of spirit and conceptual rigour by all of us who had the great pleasure of knowing him and working with him.
We are immensely proud to have commissioned his site-specific installation State of Light in 2009, and many will have seen his extraordinary presentation in Venice when he represented New Zealand at the 2013 biennale.
FORTHCOMING EXHIBITION

Juan Araujo
Measurable distances of space and air
26 April to 15 June
Private View: 25 April 18:00 – 20:00

Juan Araujo, Detail of: Sculpture Landscape-the Arch, 2019, Oil on canvas, 37 cm x 50cm.
Juan Araujo has created a new series of paintings and multimedia works based on photographs he took during research visits to the Henry Moore Foundation in Perry Green, Hertfordshire and the Barbican Centre, London in early 2018.
These two sources enabled the artist to pursue one of his long-term preoccupations – the consideration of how various articulations of modernist histories can be variously read through art and architecture, and the connections between them.

Adpot a Tub
Tubs planted across Hoxton


Over the coming weeks residents and visitors to Hoxton will see bathtubs literally sprouting up in various nooks and crannies. These have been salvaged from the recent flat renovations and planted by local residents and groups to brighten up the street.

Through a series of workshops with experienced garden designer Jane Heather and artist Olivia Mathurin, local residents are learning about plants, deciding on the planting and co-designing artworks for the exterior of the tubs, meaning the planters will be enjoyed both for their nature and as art!

Keep an eye on our PEER Local pages for more information.
