Leeds Arts University has a large and exciting exhibitions programme held at both our Blenheim Walk and Vernon Street sites.

Following our successful 170 programme, the curator is delighted to announce a new programme for 2017 focusing on the productive notion of ‘legacies.’ Solo exhibitions by recent graduates Ailsa Read and Lydia Blakeley at Vernon Street Gallery will chime with the investigation into feminist curating practices in The Blenheim Walk Gallery, featuring an interrogation of the Western film genre by American artist and academic Felice House, a renegotiation of gendered reading practices by renowned arts writer Maria Fusco, and a retrospective of the Leeds-based modernist jeweller Ann O’Donnell. Our liminal spaces, The Corridor and The Rotunda, offer exhibitions on the theme of walking and roaming, with research shows by Kai Syng Tan and Karen Tobias-Green.

Highlights from the ever popular, multi-faceted Curator’s Choice series will include exploration on the practicalities of curating in dialogue with alumnus Joe Hancock, systems of memory with former Library Interventions artist Claire Potter, and narrative excess in the shape of a figurative carousel by Marcelle Hanselaar.

All are welcome at our Exhibitions. Please feel free to book an appointment with the curator if you wish to visit displays in The Boardroom, The Rotunda, The Studio Theatre, The Corridor, and Curator’s Choice: catriona.mcara@leeds-art.ac.uk
