Time Out says

The kids are protesting in this display – about cooked tomatoes, puke on the pavement and more…

Peter Liversidge is a community-minded conceptualist on a mission to put a smile on your face. You may have seen his collection of ‘Free Signs’ in the Whitechapel Gallery’s 2013 show ‘The Spirit of Utopia’, for which he also hosted a comedy night and brought a magical summer snowstorm to the East End streets. Now he’s back at the Whitechapel with ‘Notes on Protesting’, a display of videos and placards penned by local kids from the Marion Richardson Primary School who, it turns out, are peeved with puke on the pavements and have serious beef with tomatoes. Look out for a special event on May 1.
