As part of an ongoing curatorial series, the David Roberts Foundation will show Study #13 featuring several works by Fiona Banner including ‘Every Word Unmade’ a series of 26 metre-high neon letters, together comprising an upper-case alphabet, hand made by Banner in 2007. This is the first presentation of ‘Every Word Unmade’ in London and is accompanied by a selection of Banner’s works using language and light.

Whitechapel Gallery is currently showing ‘Notes on Protesting’, a new solo exhibition by British artist Peter Liversidge, inspired by ideas around demonstration and protest. The show is the result of a collaboration with groups of primary school children from east London, who worked with Liversidge to compose and write lyrics for protest songs, create choreography and design banners and placards.

Peter Liversidge‘s second multiple with The Multiple Store is Interstate, a true-to-scale American roadsign produced using (federal approved) US Interstate Green which was only made available to the public a couple of years ago. The font, also called Interstate, is scaled down proportionately to the scale of the work; the reflective material enables viewing at night. The work comes ready with wall fixings. Interstate can be mounted on poles and can also be exhibited outdoors.
