PEER is a small-scale, contemporary visual arts organization that has earned an outstanding reputation for commissioning imaginative and ambitious arts projects. Since the launch of Martin Creed’s now seminal and first public-realm work, Work No 203: EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE ALRIGHT (1999), PEER has become increasingly embedded into the fabric of its local environment, through a range of world-class off-site regeneration projects and high-quality, gallery-based exhibitions. Enabling artists to make impactful work is at the core of PEER’s ethos, and so, too, is our resolute determination to make this work available and relevant to the widest possible audiences through its display, interpretation, and participation opportunities.
With an impressive track record of more than fifty projects over twelve years, PEER continues to offer opportunities to artists at key moments in their careers, including Mike Nelson’s Venice Biennale installation, which launched his career internationally, and Breda Beban’s first multichannel work for the public realm. PEER has also built a reputation for anticipating the zeitgeist, particularly in cases when older generations of artists are being reassessed by the newer generations, such as with Chris Marker, Theresa Hak Kyung Cha, Anthony McCall, Bill Culbert and, most recently, Stuart Brisley.
