Festival Proposals (Special Edition)

From the 1st to 30th June 2006, artist Peter Liversidge typed and posted “Festival Proposals” to the Ingleby Gallery. From the sublime to the ridiculous, 105 proposals were made and sent. Whilst 2 were casualties of the Great British postal service, the surviving 103 were collated in a book published by the gallery in August 2006. Proposals include: running a dentists surgery, sweet shop or petting zoo from the gallery for the Festivals duration, the construction of a death slide from Edinburgh Castle to the Scott Monument, or the release of a flock of 5 million starlings over the city – and many other fantastical suggestions besides.

A special edition of Festival Proposals is available. Published in an edition of 50, each one signed and numbered by the artist and sold with the promise of a unique personalised proposal to be made by the artist and sent to its new owner.
