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

As the new gallery at Blenheim Walk moves towards its final stages of completion, the curatorial focus for the current programme will take place primarily at the older of our two campuses, Vernon Street Gallery, as well as various off-site spaces.

Three exhibitions curated by alumni and/or current staff consider the rich heritage and current research, teaching and learning practices at Leeds Arts University by championing the following groups of media: craft and printed textiles, animation and comics, and mural painting. As part of this we are excited to be collaborating with The Crafts Council, Thought Bubble Comic Art Festival, and Light Night on a range of engagement events. Highlights include our Women World Builders symposium, offering a feminist perspective on concept art.

Towards the end of the season, our two postgraduate courses Creative Practice and Curation Practices will also have the opportunity to work with the Curation team on exhibition projects showcasing their multifaceted practices, findings and future investigations. Meanwhile, two of our esteemed alumni from Fine Art and Visual Communication will share their recent work in The Boardroom.

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
