Paper Trails: Treasures on Paper

This exhibition shows highlights from the University Art Collection’s wide-ranging works on paper, including early English watercolours, 20th century drawings and recent prints.

The exhibition is an opportunity to celebrate 30 years of hard work behind the scenes to fully catalogue and to make sense of the paper trails related to the artworks accumulated by the University over its history. Over 2012, the Gallery will finally be bringing the results of this cataloguing project to an audience online. The physical paper trails that took so long to catalogue will soon be available ‘virtually,’ accessible to a worldwide audience in digital form, and this information preserved for the future.

TRIPTYCH: Leeds University Fine Art Degree Show

We’re very excited to be seeing work by this years’ graduating Fine Art students before the exhibition officially opens to the public the next day.

Yael Bartana

Pavilion presents a screening of short films by Yael Bartana (1970, Kfar-Yehezkel, Israel), a video artist who explores the imagery of cultural identity. In her photographs, films and installations Bartana critically investigates her native country’s struggle for identity. Her early work documents collective rituals introducing alienation effects such as slow-motion and sound. In her recent work the artist stages situations and introduces fictive moments into real existing narrative
