Proposals for Liverpool
Distributed for Liverpool University Press
This volume collects the Peter Liversidge’s 118 proposals for art exhibitions in the city of Liverpool, in association with the Tate Liverpool’s exhibition The Fifth Floor. The proposals include cleaning and restoring the clocks at the Liverpool Lime Street Station; releasing five gorillas into Liverpool’s Sefton Park; designing a new book jacket logo for Liverpool University Press; and installing owl boxes around the city in order to encourage the settlement of these birds. Previous proposals by the author have been installed in Basel, Brussels, Barcelona, and Edinburgh, and each work in this volume is characterized by the same combination of absurdist humor and whimsy.
