About

PEER celebrates the arrival of spring with a beautifully renovated gallery and an inaugural exhibition by Angela de la Cruz, together with two new public art commissions on Hoxton Street, in the heart of East London. These projects will mark the end of a twophase renovation, which has seen major improvements to PEER’s space, elegantly unifying the two shopfronts of the original building into one architectural statement with a new, 10 metre doubleglazed façade onto the high street.

Angela de la Cruz’s presentation will feature her massive 10 x 12 metre painting Larger than Life, originally made for the Ballroom of the Royal Festival Hall in 1998. The PEER version was remade in 2004 and has toured widely abroad before being repatriated and squeezed into PEER’s more modest 5 x 7 metre gallery space. De la Cruz is widely acclaimed for her poignant and sometimes tragicomic works, situated somewhere between painting and sculpture. Her works test and challenge the objectness and authority of painting’s status by tearing, crushing and breaking canvases and stretchers. PEER will also exhibit new work specially commissioned for this presentation.
