More about the exhibitions:
42 New Briggate, SLICE: Part of SLICE’s series of ‘Triple Glazed’ residencies, each week artists from the College of Art, Leeds Met and Leeds University will be invited to collaborate to produce new work within 42 New Briggate. This week’s artists are:
SLICE hopes that this programme will provide an opportunity for art students to make a connection with the city and other artists as well as an opportunity to make and present work.
Leeds College of Art (Vernon Street)
Patrick Oliver: The exhibition of Patrick Oliver’s work demonstrates his talent as a painter to capture the colour, shape and energy of Cornish, Irish and Yorkshire landscapes. The exhibition is fittingly held in the Vernon Street building where Oliver lectured for many years.
Henry Moore Institute
Undone:Undone is concerned with sculpture that lies somewhere on the threshold between the made and unmade. This fascinating exhibition brings together a large body of recent work by international contemporary artists and in doing so identifies a shared aesthetic that characterises the work of this otherwise disparate group of artists. These ‘homespun’ sculptures, made from readily-available materials by artists from Europe, the US and Brazil seem to reflect a new age of austerity.
Leeds Railway Station (Leeds Met Gallery Billboard)
Heatshield on a Silver Moon by Alan Dunn: A new billboard work from Alan Dunn inspired by 2001 A Space Odyssey and Olafur Eliasson’s Weather Project at Tate Modern. High up in Leeds Railway Station concourse, a vision of the moon will appear, hand-painted and including fragments of broken gothic records. Down below, a genuine tiny fragment of a heatshield from Apollo 8, flown near the moon in December 1968, will be presented for viewing.
