Peter Liversidge: Topsy Turvy (2010) at Pavement Gallery in Manchester, Oxford Road 26 June — 30 July 2021 Entrance is free — Visit now

Pavement Gallery presents Topsy Turvy by Peter Liversidge in an exhibition opening 26th June 2021. One of the artist’s physically realised proposals, a red neon sign of the title word is presented in the Pavement window space against a black background. The work, in tandem with the gallery’s architecture, alludes to the building’s mercantile past, as well as the broader visual experience of contemporary city centre streets. Contrasted against its surroundings, the bright sign demands our attention, inviting us to question how we engage with targeted forms of visual communication within the city.
