Romanian Artist Dan Perjovschi in Liverpool

Romanian artist Dan Perjovschi exhibits in Liverpool, within ‘The Fifth Floor: Ideas Taking Space’ show at Tate.

Dan Perjovschi’s cartoon-like drawings, disarmingly immediate and politically resonant, responding to local and national issues, have appeared in a range of formats: from his notebooks, to newspapers and galleries around the world. For Tate Liverpool, Perjovschi drew directly onto the gallery walls and stairwells, both before and during the exhibition, working with and alongside Liverpool schoolchildren. For the first time he invited the public to draw their own cartoons alongside his own.

Other artists involved in ‘The Fifth Floor’ are: Polish artist Pawel Althamer, Olivier Bardin (France), Rineke Dijkstra (The Netherlands), Liverpool artist Nina Edge, Swedish artist collective International Festival, Peter Liversidge (UK), Rafael Lozano-Hemmer (Mexico/Canada), Liverpool artist Paul Rooney, Tino Sehgal (Germany), tenantspin (a Liverpool-based community TV channel), Xijing Men (an artists’ group from China, Japan and South Korea).

The exhibition will be accompanied by a comprehensive publication, edited by Peter Gorschluter (Head of Exhibitions, Tate Liverpool) and published by Liverpool University Press, featuring contributions by participating artists as well as interviews and essays by Lars Bang Larsen, Claire Bishop and Nicolas Bourriaud among others.

The exhibition is open until 1 February 2009. Admission free.
